   Join us for freedom.

Join us for Freedom’s Feast: A sacred night led by Jewish and Christian faith leaders, along with performing artists, musicians and local leaders, to share a meaningful moment in a unique celebration of memory, freedom and human dignity. 

April 4th 2015 marks the first day of Passover, the Eve of Easter Sunday, and the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s assassination. Let us gather as a community committed  to the continued pursuit of freedom from all forms of slavery as the centerpiece of our communal New York City table.

Freedom’s Feast features highlights from the Passover Seder and the Biblical narratives of Passover and Easter, multimedia interactive storytelling, a  festive feast (with kosher for passover options) live music and prayer, contemplation, conversation  and a call to action for justice across America and all over the world.

We invite you to join us for freedom.
