Description:

Join us as we once again honor the Holocaust survivors of our communityby recreating the same Passover Seder held in 1946, the first to be heldafter World War II. Return with us to the DP camp of Munich as thesurvivors of the Holocaust come together to celebrate the holiday ofFreedom, the Season of Deliverance.

Yet how after the near destruction of the people of Israel, could there bea Seder of Freedom? It fell to Rabbi Abraham Klausner, a chaplain in theUS 3rd Army to solve this problem. In a masterful, heart-stirring way hewrote The Survivors’ Hagaddah. It is unlike any Hagaddah ever written andtrumpets the resiliency of humanity against evil.

Join with us in recreating the historical event as we chant the melodiessung in the camps.

“We were slaves to Hitler in Germany!”
