Dr. Deena Grant, Associate Professor of Jewish Studies, gathered about 20 students, faculty, staff, and friends on April 11 for an Interfaith Seder at Hartford Seminary.
Rabbi Ilana Garber of Beth El Temple in West Hartford led the Seder, taking participants through the Haggadah, the text recited on the first two nights of Passover, including a narrative of the Exodus. She also provided tambourines for accompaniment to songs that help tell the story.
Those attending were from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim backgrounds, including a number of students from Hartford Seminary’s International Peacemaking Program.
Passover begins this year on the evening of April 19.
