Jerusalem, Israel - The Hebrew University of Jerusalem's International Welcome Center is pleased to announce the launch of the annual program that celebrates diversity and inclusivity during the Passover holiday. The initiative invites international students to participate in a traditional Passover Seder dinner with HUJI families, promoting cultural exchange and understanding between different communities. 

The annual program has received an overwhelmingly positive response from international students at the university, who are eager to experience the traditions and customs of Passover. The International Welcome Center has partnered with families of HUJI employees, who have volunteered to host the international students and share their Passover traditions and stories. 

Maria from Argentina, an international student who will participate in the program this year, said: "I’m so grateful to be invited to a local family's Seder dinner. It will be such a unique and meaningful experience for me to learn about Passover traditions and the culture of Israel. I feel welcomed and included, and it makes me appreciate the warmth and hospitality of the Israeli people."

We hope that this program will continue to promote intercultural dialogue and understanding." 

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming community for all its students, regardless of their background.
