SUNY Geneseo Hillel

Adapting and Sustaining

Passover this year will, once again, look a bit different. While we won't be able to gather around a table together, we will still have opportunities to come together as a community to celebrate the ongoing survival of the Jewish people, and of the human spirit.

Please read below for information regarding SUNY Geneseo Hillel's seder on the first night of Passover, options for eating Kosher for Passover throughout the week, and more.

Please register by Sunday, March 14th to receive a Passover meal on Saturday, March 27th.

Any questions or concerns can be directed to Laura Matthews, Director of Jewish Student Life, at
