TO THE EDITOR:

Dining halls on campus should accommodate Jewish students by supplying Lenoir Dining Hall and/or Rams Head Dining Hall with kosher options for Passover, or at least some matzah.

This past week, Jewish students at Carolina have been celebrating Passover, a holiday that commemorates the Jews’ escape from slavery in Egypt. During this week, Jews are not supposed to eat any bread, wheat products, etc., to remind us that when the Hebrews fled Egypt, there was not even enough time for their bread to rise.

Eliminating any and all bread products from one’s diet is harder than you might think, and at a school with more than 1,000 Jewish students, UNC should accommodate them.
