This week we are celebrating the Passover, the Jewish festival of Freedom. Passover commemorates the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt and the story serves as a powerful metaphor for many kinds of liberation, with lots for all of us to reflect on.
Our speakers will be two guests from the JCRC. We will not have a full meal but we will have some Passover foods to enjoy!
Do you need to be a “person of faith” to come? Absolutely not. We welcome anyone with interest in conversation about how faith/spirituality shape our lives and intersect with the issues we care about.
This gathering is hosted by the Interfaith @ Cedar Commons organizer team and the Augsburg Interfaith Scholars.
