Spring is a season of rebirth and renewal, when many faiths engage in spiritual practices that hold great opportunities for healing. Join us for an interfaith celebration of freedom, devotion, and resurrection.

The interfaith celebration starts on Friday evening with a Passover Seder led by Rabbi Zoe Zak. Passover commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. This evening we will be celebrating freedom together, while sharing in Jewish tradition and ritual. The celebration continues on Sunday morning with an Easter Sunday service to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
