The Jewish Festival of Passover celebrates the ancient journey from Egypt, a place of enslavement, toward Sinai, a place of Revelation. Join us as we together create an Interfaith Passover Seder, celebrating the symbolic journey from places of personal stuckness to sacred spaces of communal freedom.
More than a festival, it is an elaborate teaching experience intended to call people to their identity as the People of God. By using all of the senses, the Passover Seder tells the story of God’s grace in history and calls the participants to experience and share in the story as their own story.
There has been increasing interest in religious and spiritual communities regarding this ancient observance. Various reasons are cited for this renewed interest: an increasing sensitivity to cultural and societal problems and a corresponding desire to learn about others; a renewed awareness of the importance of the Old Testament Scriptures as Christian Scripture; a desire or even a need in our modern world to recover a sense of the sacred through liturgy and sacrament; the willingness to find new and innovative ways to worship; and perhaps even the enjoyment that comes from acknowledging the continuity with a 3,000 year old community of faith.
Being part of this pilgrimage to freedom can deepen the Holy Week experience for Christians, the Passover Season for Jews, and the spiritual journey of Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus and others.
