WHAT: People of many faiths from all over Cincinnati are invited to join in song, prayer, and honest conversation at a Freedom Seder. Attendees will taste the Passover foods, sing songs of liberation, and learn and grow with pastors, rabbis, musicians, and the director of the I AM Campaign on human trafficking.
On April 4, 1969, on the one-year anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, in the basement of a church in Washington, DC, 800 people, half Jews, the rest black and white Christians, took part in the first Freedom Seder. Together they told the stories of their ancestors’ release from bondage, traversing the wilderness, and pursuing a life of freedom.
WHEN: Wednesday, March 28, 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Kenney Heights Arts Center Annex
6620 Montgomery Rd., Unit 2 – Cincinnati, OH 45213

WHY: The story of Exodus, the story of the first Freedom Seder, and the story that is happening right now – all of it is part of a journey towards peace. With each retelling, we bring to life the reality of the struggle for a just and free world. We are reminded that all lives matter and that our sacred traditions hold wisdom for our current plight.
