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)
