Passover is one of my favorite holidays.  Since I can’t go home and be with my family, I’m happy that Hillel will provide a place for me to celebrate and be with people I’m comfortable with.  Hillel is my “home away from home.”   Dani Baker ‘17

This is my first Passover away from home and my family….but Passover at Elon is a family event, too!  We talk about how the Hillel Center is our home on campus, and Passover gives us a chance to build a real community at our house.  Allie Roteman ‘16

You’re away from home and Hillel is your second home, your Hillel family, your family away from home.  It is great to eat together and to observe Passover and celebrate together as a family.  I look forward to Passover at Elon Hillel, just like I look forward to all events with Hillel.  I know the people, people know me when I walk in, and I’m guaranteed to have a good time.”   Spencer Neiman ‘17

At home, I eat matzo for fun;  but at Elon, away from the North and my home, being with Hillel at Passover gives me an opportunity to keep with Jewish traditions – it is really empowering!  I have family at home in New Jersey, and then I have my Hillel family.  There is an instant connection and bond with Jewish students at Elon, whether I know their names or not."  Sam Ackerman ‘16
