Matthew Vogel, Executive Director of Hillel at Baruch College in NYC, wrote in the ePhilanthropy newsletter about an international Hillel event where ' 24 students and six professional staff members from Baruch College, the Inter-Disciplinary Center in Israel, and the Kiev Hillel met in Ukraine to explore Jewish Peoplehood in a program called Kol Hillel. In addition to having seder with the Odessa Hillel and Shabbat with the Kiev Hillel, students also had the opportunity to visit Jewish communities in Zhitomer, Berdichev and Uman. The first seder however, was a particularly special moment for everyone involved. Participants were asked to bring their families traditions to our unified and self-led seder. We sang dayenu and whipped around scallions in the Persian tradition, we ate a Hillel sandwich with everything on the seder plate instead of just charoset and maror as in the Indian tradition and we sang and danced as one people in Hebrew, English and Russian.'
