Eliot House Hosts Cajun Dinner for Gulf Coast Students

MHC students from the Gulf Coast region and transfer students from colleges in the New Orleans area were invited to a Cajun dinner at Eliot House Tuesday, October 18. The idea originated in the dean of the College division and was organized by Rabbi Lisa Freitag-Keshet, interim dean of religious and spiritual life and Jewish chaplain to the college. “We wanted to give them a chance to meet each other, to support each other, and to show our support for them,” Rabbi Freitag-Keshet said. Willits catered the Cajun meal, and many students commented that it was very comforting to have a taste of home provided for them at MHC.
