Racial Justice Shabbat Passover Seder | March 30, 2018
We are bound together by our stories, our communities and our shared ritual of dining together - both in celebration and in times of struggle. Despite differences in appearance, language or faith, there is much that unites us as humans. However, although we have made strides towards racial justice in the last century, discrimination is still pervasive.
For our ancestors, it was the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans in the US, The Chinese Exclusion Act and anti-Chinese sentiment, slavery and African Americans fighting for their freedom, civil rights in the US, the displacement of 850,000 Jewish refugees from the Middle East and North Africa, and the genocide of six million Jews in Europe. Today, it’s Islamophobia and the Muslim registry, violence and systemic racism towards the black community, the future of DREAMers and DACA, to name a few.
Join me and my partner for this event, Shalon, for a very special Passover Seder. We will connect by sharing the stories of the ancestors who came before us, and motivate each other to rise up, take action, and enact change in our world.
The six-course, family-style Passover meal will be prepared by a local chef and include wine pairings. Speakers from organizations fighting for racial justice will dine with us, and a portion of the proceeds from this event will go to one of their organizations. The dinner will take place in the dining room of the historic Hotel Majestic in San Francisco.
