Kehilla’s Community Passover Seder 5779: Truth as Resistance

Saturday, April 20, 2019 @ 4:45 pm - 9:00 pm

Kehilla Community Seder 2019/5779
Truth as Resistance

with Rabbis David J. Cooper & Burt Jacobson
music by Linda Hirschhorn

and with a special message from
Rabi’a Keeble
Founder of Qal’bu Maryam Women’s Mosque, “America’s first all-inclusive mosque”

Rabi’a Keeble is a long-time social activist and spiritual leader. She established Qal’bu Maryam (Miriam’s or Mary’s heart) to create a mosque space that honored the women as religious teachers and which would not be segregated by gender.

In a time of lies, truth is resistance.
The Kehilla Seder continues to elucidate our theme for this year, Truth-Emet, which we introduced at High Holy Days. Along with Passover blessings and songs, we will explore how the concept of truth relates to the Passover theme of the struggle for freedom against Pharaonic tyranny. The story of the Exodus starts with a series of lies about the Hebrews to justify Pharaoh’s enslavement and oppression of them. Untruth is a necessary element to enforce white supremacy, xenophobia, and other oppressive ideologies and policies. Passover is the sacred time when we rededicate ourselves to the work of liberation on many fronts.

Join Rabbis David and Burt, Cantor Linda Hirschhorn and Rabi’a Keeble to celebrate and rededicate at our annual Kehilla Community Seder.

We are excited to work with Sacred Kitchen to offer a delicious Sephardic Seder Menu, mostly organic, completely vegetarian, with gluten and dairy-free options.
