On March 15th, 350 community leaders and members from diverse faiths and backgrounds gathered for the 9th Annual JCRC Interfaith Seder. Led by Rabbi Elana Zelony of Congregation Beth Torah and Reverend Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III, of Friendship-West Baptist Church, the Interfaith Seder drew comparisons between Passover stories and challenges that we face in present times, by exploring a social action theme or value that resonates across numerous faiths.
Many guests commented that it was an inspiring and uplifting experience to come together to reflect on Celebrating Our Diversity.
Thank you [to the] Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas to put on this event that goes a long way in helping to bridge members from diverse communities and make new connections.

I am in awe of the event and each year the content and diversity of participants get better. It surely remains one of the most important and meaningful events I attend each year.
