A Heymishe Passover Brunch

img_0590From Sonya Levine ’17:

Tired of eight days of monotonous Passover food?

Help cook a FREE, vegetarian, kosher for Pesakh brunch from 11:00 am
onward, no prior cooking experience needed. We will also be cooking
one VEGAN recipe! When we’ve finished preparing a plethora of exciting
recipes, we’ll eat!

We’ll also read some humorous stories about Passover by Sholom
Aleichem, author of the “Tevye the Dairyman” short stories that were
the inspiration for “Fiddler on the Roof”, and listen to wonderful
Passover-related music!

Sponsored by the Wesleyan Jewish Community, The Bayit, and the Yiddish
Book Center with support from the Jack & Ruthe B. Cowl Center for
Jewish Culture.

Date: Saturday, April 19 (tomorrow)
Time:  11:00 AM – 1:30 PM

WesMaps 2014-2015 Has Arrived

For the countless number of you who have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of next year’s course catalog – your wait is over. Wesleyan’s course catalog for the 2014-2015 academic year has been made public via the website which you all love, or love to hate, WesMaps.

Though, like every year, it might be hard to actually plan your schedule at this point, especially if you are hoping to take any of the many classes whose time-slots are simply listed as TBA. Additionally, even for those classes that have been scheduled, there still exists a possibility for change. But there are also classes which will certainly be added later, some of which might be taught by visiting professors, or be a last minute addition by the QAC.

But do have fun browsing. A sampling of next semester’s classes, as well as next year’s CHUM themes, follow the jump.

European Society Meet and Greet

From Zoe Tolouse ’16:

Come to the European Society’s first meet and greet this Thursday 7 pm
at International House (151 Church St, next to the Bayit!). The
European Society is a newly founded group trying to create a European
student community at Wes. If you are an international or exchange
student from Europe, grew up in Europe, love Europe, studied/will
study abroad in Europe, then this event is for you. There will be
cheese, grape juice, great conversation and great people.

Hope to see you there!

Date: Thursday, Feb. 20th
Time: 7PM
Place: International House
