Welcome to Lab/Shul, an artist-driven, everybody-friendly, God-optional, pop up, experimental community for sacred Jewish gatherings based in NYC and reaching the world.

Freedom’s Feast

  • Union Theological Seminary - 3041 Broadway, New York, NY 10027


Join us for Freedom’s Feast: a sacred second night Passover Seder led by Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Zen faith leaders, along with local activists, performing artists and musicians, in a shared celebration of justice, liberation and human dignity.

During the holy weeks of Passover and Easter, we gather around a communal New York City table, sitting down together so we can rise up together for freedom from all forms of oppression.

Inspired by our ancient narratives, Freedom’s Feast features highlights from the rituals of Seder, interactive storytelling, live music and prayer, a festive feast (kosher for Passover options available), contemplation, conversation and a call to action for unity around the world. #SitToRise
