Join Pursue, Uri L’Tzedek, and Hazon for the first ever Food Justice Seder!
As Passover draws near and we begin thinking about age-old themes of slavery and liberation, we’ll gather to connect the dots between contemporary food justice issues and the re-telling of our Exodus story.
Date: Sunday, April 10, 2011
Time: 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 6:00 p.m. sharp.
Location: Congregation Beth Elohim, 274 Garfield Place, Brooklyn
Cost: $18 in advance, $20 at the door. This is a 21+ event.
To BRING: Chametz! Whether or not you were planning on cleaning your home before Passover, instead of discarding your chametz / leaven (what’s that?), please bring it with you to the Seder for our collection. You can also bring any other non-perishables that your heart desires (anything unopened and sealed). We will be donating the collected goods to the West Side Campaign Against Hunger. So if you have unopened fancy pasta or bags of legumes or boxes of crackers – whether you would have thrown them out or not – bring them with you to the Seder and help us provide a meaningful contribution to an organization doing good work in the fight against hunger.
The event will feature:
- Opportunities to connect with inspiring food justice campaigns
- Space for conversation connecting the Seder themes to food justice
- Re-imagined rituals to highlight food justice issues
- Delicious,Tav HaYosher certified food
- Readings from Uri L’Tzedek’s newly released Food and Justice Haggadah Supplement
- Awesome people (like you!)
This event is brought to you by Pursue, Uri L’Tzedek, and Hazon and is co-sponsored by Congregation Beth Elohim / Brooklyn Jews.
