Join Jewish Museum Milwaukee to break bread (or in this case matzah) with members of Milwaukee’s African American and Jewish communities. Explore common ground and the universal pursuit of freedom at a ritual meal that has become a bridging tradition in cities across the nation at this special post-Passover event. Freedom Seders bring together African Americans and Jews to eat, discuss, and celebrate the shared values of justice and liberation both cultures find in the Exodus story.
Included with the program:
- A kosher meal of BBQ chicken, candied sweet potatoes, greens, cornbread, apple cobbler and beverage
- Ritual seder plate food to share
- A customized Haggadah to take home
