Information on University Events
Out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to limit exposure to COVID-19 by Maryville community members and event attendees, all on-campus and off-campus university-sponsored events have been cancelled, moved to a virtual format, or postponed until further notice.
If an event is shifted to a virtual format, you will be contacted by your event organizer.

Purim Interactive Program
February 25, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join Maryville Hillel for a celebration of the holiday of Purim! Purim is a holiday that celebrates identity, speaking up for yourself and others and how we hide or assert elements of our identity in the world. Pretty cool! Historically, Purim commemorates when the Jews were facing destruction in Persia, living as a minority in another culture. A Jewish queen, hidden within the Persian royalty, reveals her identity to speak up for her people, saving them from destruction.
Pick up a FREE interactive holiday celebration box in McNally House kitchen after you register so you can join us in the activities during this Zoom event!
