Passover Seder Services

The REC Foundation seeks to schedule events, such as VEX Worlds, at times that are convenient to all members of our community, but given the size of our program and venue availability it can be challenging to find dates that accommodate everyone. In situations where our events conflict with an international, national or religious holiday, we seek to provide our teams and their families with as much information as possible to aid their planning.

This year, VEX Worlds will take place during the first two days of the Passover holiday. We have compiled the following information for attendees who will be in Louisville during this time.
