Pepperdine's Jewish Law Students' Association hosted the seventh annual model Seder on Monday, Apr. 6 at the School of Law. Led by Professor Sam Levine, the event modeled the traditional Passover Seder Meal, which is a held on the first and the second nights of the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Levine discussed the traditions of Passover with students, faculty, and staff. He talked about the Haggadah or the story of the Israelite exodus from Egypt. Guests observed Seder customs such as eating bitter herbs, which symbolize the harshness and slavery the Jews endured in Ancient Egypt.
"We're glad to be able to participate in this very important Jewish Holiday," said Burton Rojas, coordinator of diversity, recruitment, and student services at the School of Law. "Having this type of event helps each of us learn about and appreciate other cultures."
The Jewish Law Students' Association promotes interest and further understanding of the Jewish religion and culture.
