This year, April 4th marks the first day of Passover, the Eve of Easter Sunday, and the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination.
So we're hosting Freedom's Feast -- an interactive, interfaith seder -- to celebrate hope and the journey to liberation.
Saturday, April 4th, 7-11pm
BAM Cafe in Brooklyn

But this isn't your grandma's seder (bubbe, I love you).
Yes, we'll have highlights from the Passover Seder and the Biblical stories of Passover and Easter. But we'll also have multimedia interactive storytelling, a festive feast (including Flourless Chocolate Cake with Seasonal Berries -- yes, please), live music and prayer, contemplation, poetry, conversation and a call to action for justice across America and all over the world.
We're working with some amazing partners to set a big communal table in NYC -- including Bend the Arc, Auburn Seminary, Kolot Chayeinu and Forest City Ratner, and Lab/Shul (that's me and my team!).
Freedom's Feast is exactly why I founded Lab/Shul -- to reimagine sacred gatherings that nourish our thirst for meaning, connection, spirituality and community. We're an everybody friendly, artist-driven, experimental community for sacred Jewish and interfaith gatherings.
Freedom's Feast is one part Passover, one part Holy Week, and one part movement building for justice -- shared over a delicious meal with clergy, artists, and local leaders.
In solidarity and with hope,
Amichai & The Lab/Shul Team
We were moved to create this video because people who care about their organization’s communications kept coming to us asking how they could send compelling email like we do. So we made this video, summarizing what we know and we hope it’s useful for you.
As I write this, yard signs are going up all over Tucson that say WE STAND WITH ROSA as a part of a new arm of our campaign to close her deportation case. But you don't have to be in Tucson to stand with Rosa ...
This is our moment. The Federal Budget and our policy priorities are moral decisions that shape our world – and as people of faith, we can build the moral movement for a better one. Please join me in signing a letter to Members of Congress endorsing the "People's Budget.”
Next week, we’re going straight to our New York decision makers to deliver a faithful petition that demands full and fair funding for our children’s schools.
