Interfaith Seder Meal Planned for All 


An interfaith Seder meal will unite people of different faith traditions on Tuesday, April 22, at 7 p.m. Rabbi Enid Lader of Beth Israel -- The West Temple will lead us as we ritually recall the journey from slavery to liberation in the book of Exodus. The Seder is part of the Jewish festival of Passover, yet invites people of all faiths to grow in mutual respect and understanding of our spiritual experiences, both shared and diverse. Sponsored by the West Park Interfaith Council, it will be held at Beth Israel -- The West Temple, 14308 Triskett Road. All are welcome to this 90-minute event. An optional discussion with Rabbi Lader and interfaith clergy is included. A free will offering will be taken to cover meal costs, with remaining funds going to The Bread Basket, a local food pantry. While there is no admission fee, you must RSVP to reserve your table setting. To RSVP, call 216-941-8882.
