Dedication: Kassow Hillel Kosher Eatery

“HARTFORD, CT, May 7, 2012 – With a grand flourish and a pair of oversized scissors, a group of administrators, faculty, students and alumni leaders cut a large ribbon in the Mather Dining Hall on May 3, marking the formal dedication of the Kassow Hillel Kosher Eatery at Trinity, a place where Jewish students as well as students of all faiths can dine on kosher food for the first time in the 189-year history of the College.​ The culinary addition to the Dining Hall was made possible by gifts totaling $125,000 from individuals and organizations, including the Zachs family, the Samuel Roskin Trust at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, and the law firm of Rogan Nassau LLC in Hartford. The eatery is named in honor of two distinguished members of the Trinity community: Lisa Pleskow Kassow, director of Trinity College Hillel, and Samuel D. Kassow ’66, Charles H. Northam Professor of History. Read the rest of article HERE.”
