Discussing Freedom & Oppression – 4/18

A Two-part series
Mondays, April 4th and April 18th, 7:00 p.m.

Comedians often joke about it, but polarized discussions at holiday family dinners really can be stressful. Passover Seders are not exempt. Join us for a two-part series designed to build skills that can support fruitful dialogue with others at our Seder tables and in the rest of our lives. The Passover theme of transition from oppression to freedom is a great topic for training on these skills. It is also a theme that should pervade our broader community in contemporary time every day of the year.

Join us, in-person at Tifereth Israel. We encourage teens to join us as well.

Monday, April 4th

The anticipation of Passover, the festival of freedom, offers a perfect opportunity to introduce and discuss approaches to meaningful and harmonious conversations regarding Passover themes of freedom that touch upon issues of equality, equity, justice and more.

Monday, April 18th 

We will have an opportunity to debrief about how our enhanced communication approaches and conversations factored into our Passover gatherings. Did they facilitate greater awareness and interest in action? Additionally, through breakout sessions and more, we can envision how to implement all of this into our daily lives when choosing to advance social justice and support those still oppressed.

This series has been developed by Tifereth Israel's re-emerging Social Justice/Social Action committee as we look to greater congregational engagement.


Your RSVP will greatly assist us in preparing. You may email Beth or call the office and let us know you’ll be joining us!
