Social Justice

19th Annual Model Passover Seder

2:00pm - 3:30pm EDT April 12, 2016

NEW LOCATION: Rogers Center Lobby

Rabbi Robert Goldstein presiding.
At this festive Passover ritual called the Seder, we will tell the story of the Exodus of Moses and the Israelites as they escaped from Pharaoh in ancient Egypt. The roots of our Western tradition of Social Justice are found in the Prophetic wisdom and challenges of Judaism, and their powerful expression in the Seder Haggadah narrative. RSVP required.

The holiday of Passover, which begins at sundown on Friday, April 22, 2016, is a holiday of freedom as well as a holiday of springtime.  It is celebrated for seven or eight days, depending on one’s denomination (Orthodox/Conservative - 8; Reconstructionist/Reform - 7).

The highlight of Passover observance is the Seder, with its many symbolic foods and its elaborate liturgy, the Haggadah. We hope to share with you the richness of our history as children of Abraham and invite you to participate in this festive event.

RSVP to jcm@merrimack.edu by April 7th, or by completing the form below.
