Common History, Common Destiny: The Jewish and African American Experience of Slavery and Liberation

Common History, Common Destiny: The Jewish and African American Experience of Slavery and Liberation

Mon, March 29, 2021, 8 PM to 9:30 PM Israel Daylight Time (UTC+3)

On Facebook Live here.

Jews and African Americans are the only people, as a people, to share the common history of slavery and redemption, and from which the perpetuating of the history of these can be redeeming in of itself. Many black slaves in America learned to read by reading the bible, and found hope that, in God’s liberating of the Jewish people, they, too, would be liberated.

This shared history albeit through different experiences, as well as Jews standing with blacks during the Civil Rights movement, are strong foundations upon which to explore our past and future, through the prism of Passover and particularly the Seder. How did Passover and the Exodus inspire black slaves for generations? How have Jews embraced and remembered their enslavement 3500 years ago? How can that be an inspiration to African Americans today? What are the elements of the Passover Seder that can be particularly significant to African Americans?
