75-year tradition of hosting Passover community meals continues

Hillel of Washington University in St. Louis (WashU Hillel) invites the community to join St. Louis area university students, faculty and staff in its 75-year tradition of hosting luncheons and kosher dinners for Passover throughout the holidays.

Community lunches will take place from Monday April 18 to Friday April 22 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The dinners will be open to the community from Monday April 18 to Wednesday April 20 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Meals will be held at WashU Hillel, 6300 Forsyth Blvd. 63105, and are also available as take-out from Hillel with lunch pickup from 11:30 a.m. to noon and dinner pickup from 5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.

All meals are free for students in the St. Louis area.


Costs for community members are $15/lunch and $18/dinner. All meals are prepared by Kohn’s Kosher Restaurant & Deli and food laws are followed. To view the daily menu or make a reservation, visit www.wasuhillel.org/Passover. Reservations for community members must be placed by Wednesday, April 13. Reservations for students are encouraged but not required unless a food allergy or intolerance needs to be considered.

These meals are in addition to the multiple Seder experiences that WashU Hillel is encouraging again this year for more than 500 students.

Free student meals are made possible through the generosity of many community members, parents, and alumni across the country, and the following congregational, organizational, and corporate luncheon sponsors (to March 25): Congregation Bais Abraham; Central Reform Congregation; Congregation B’nai Amoona; Congregation Shaare Emeth; The Delmar Gardens family; Gatesworth communities; Jewish Federation of St. Louis; Kol Rinah; Kohn’s Kosher Restaurant & Deli; Massie Fudemberg Goldberg, LLC; Millbrook Pharmacy; Traditional Congregation; and the United Hebrew Congregation.
