The event will begin at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, in the Community Life Center at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1725 North New Hope Road in Raleigh.
Participants will enjoy traditional Passover foods, and discussion will focus on what it means to accept the gifts and responsibilities of freedom and to struggle against oppression as a person of faith. Everyone brings their own spiritual perspectives.
First-time Seder attendees are welcome. Register at www.yavneh-raleigh.org/passover2017.
Organizers are asking for a small donation at the door to support Yavneh, which is part of a worldwide transdenominational movement that is grounded in the history of Judaism but welcomes people of all spiritual beliefs
