Description:

The Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives and New York City Council Member Karen Koslowitz presents The Annual Holocaust Freedom Seder

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017 at 12:00pm At the Student Union Building.

Join us as we once again honor the Holocaust survivors of our community by recreating the same Passover Seder held in 1946, the first to be held after World War II. Return with us to the DP camp of Munich as the survivors of the Holocaust come together to celebrate the holiday of Freedom, the Season of Deliverance. Yet how, after the near destruction of the people of Israel, could there be a Seder
of Freedom? It fell to Rabbi Abraham Klausner, a chaplain in the US 3rd Army, to solve this problem. In a masterful, heart-stirring way he wrote The Survivor's Haggadah. It is unlike any Haggadah ever written and trumpets the resiliency of humanity again evil. Join with us in recreating the historical event as we chant the melodies sung in the camps. We were slaves to Hitler in Germany

Admission is $14.00 per person. Guests receive a Haggadah, a program led by a local rabbi and cantor, and a kosher meal. You must
