During this frightening and uncertain time, we hope that this year’s Maslenitsa will give us a chance to come together as a Rutgers community and to be among friends as we look toward brighter days.  Maslenitsa is a holiday celebrated across Slavic cultures, and this year we will place a special accent on Ukrainian traditions, in part by adding some delicious varenniki to our table.  We warmly encourage members of the Ukrainian, Polish, Russian-Jewish, and Russian Clubs, students of the Russian and East European Program, and others, to come join us, and to bring along friends.    Russian food (bliny!) and drinks will be served.Come enjoy the food and good company, and learn about this Russian holiday.For information about this holiday see
