Hundreds enjoy Passover with Chabad at UCF


All set up for the seder

Two hundred fifty people, one huge tent, and the smell of brisket coming from the oven, can only mean one thing: Passover at Chabad of UCF is here! Every year, Chabad of the University of Central Floria holds seders on the first two nights of Passover, open to all Jewish students in the Orlando area.

Lighting holiday candles

With many students from out of state or even down south, and unable to celebrate Pesach with their families, Chabad remains their home away from home. There where even a few families that came to visit their children and made Chabad at UCF their destination for the seders. Looking around at the seder table, one would never guess that these students may have just gotten to know each other, because the atmosphere is so warm and friendly - much like family! 

And on top of the grand Pesach seder experiences, Chabad at UCF also offered a Passover meal plan so that students enjoyed kosher-for-Passover hot meals throughout the holiday week. A college student’s Passover dinner typically consists of “matzah pizza”, but when you joined Chabad for their meals, you were guaranteed to leave with a full stomach. Overall 1,000 meals were served over Passover.

Feel free to join Chabad of UCF every Shabbat for a Friday night four-course meal, new friends, and a truly generous and welcoming family; it’s an all-encompassing experience you don’t want to miss! For more information about Chabad at UCF please visit http://www.jewishucf.com.
