Celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
The Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding will host the SECOND ANNUAL "Freedom Seder" on Thursday, April 17 at 8pm.
The event is a partnership between Black Jewish Dialogue, the Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding and the Center for Jewish Life - Hillel at Princeton University. The purpose of the Freedom Seder is to recognize cultural and religious group commonalities, to introduce individuals from a variety of backgrounds to the Passover holiday, to commemorate the experiences of all those who have been enslaved, and to recognize that we still have work to do to ensure that everyone is truly free. ALL are welcome to attend! (Dessert and traditional Passover food/ drink will be provided.)
