The Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and Archives and New York City Council Member Karen Koslowitz presents
The Annual Holocaust Freedom Seder
At the Student Union Building.
Join us as we once again honor the Holocaust survivors of our community by recreating the same Passover Seder held in 1946, the first to be held after World War II. Return with us to the DP camp of Munich as the survivors of the Holocaust come together to celebrate the holiday of Freedom, the Season of Deliverance. Yet how, after the near destruction of the people of Israel, could there be a Seder of Freedom? It fell to Rabbi Abraham Klausner, a chaplain in the US 3rd Army, to solve this problem. In a masterful, heart-stirring way he wrote The Survivor’s Haggadah. It is unlike any Haggadah ever written and trumpets the resiliency of humanity again evil. Join with us in recreating the historical event as we chant the melodies sung in the camps. “We were slaves to Hitler in Germany!” Admission is $14 per person. Guests receive a Haggadah, a program led by a local rabbi and cantor, and a kosher meal. You must pre-register to attend. Online registration is encouraged. Please mail checks and completed registration forms to: Office of Institutional Advancement. Attn: Annual Freedom Seder. Queensborough Community College CUNY. 222-05 56th Ave, Bayside, NY 11364.
