March for Our Lives, March 24, 2018
Many of us plan to participate in the March for Our Lives on March 24. Invoking the teaching and Mitzvah of Pikuah Nefesh, Saving a Life, we will pray with our feet that Shabbat. Reb David and others will gather at Pennsylvania Avenue and 3rd Street at 12:00 Noon for a Kiddush with grape juice and challah! Look for us so we can march together .
Come to the MLK Interfaith Freedom Seder
April 3, 2018 from 6:30-9pm
To Honor Dr. King's "Mountaintop Speech" 50 Years Ago, The Night Before
He Was Killed, And the 49th Anniversary of the 1969 Freedom Seder
Honor Dr. King's legacy and celebrate the revival of the Freedom Seder as we rededicate ourselves to the struggle for racial justice and equality. We will celebrate with song, stories, and music; with noted speakers and community discussions about what freedom from oppression means, while sharing Passover ritual foods and light dinner fare. (This photo is from the 1969 Freedom Seder, with Rev Channing Phillips, (now rabbi) Arthur Waskow, and Topper Carew.)
