Virtual Freedom Seder
Join the NCMA and the Friends of the Judaic Art Gallery for the inaugural Freedom Seder, a time to recognize freedom from slavery, remember stories of liberation, and lift our hopes for a future of peace and justice. We’ll meet virtually with religious and civic leaders from around North Carolina to share the importance of renewal, storytelling, community, and social action.
The Freedom Seder will be hosted by NCMA Director of Film and Performing Arts Moses T. Alexander Greene and Rabbi Eric Solomon of Beth Meyer Synagogue. Listen to the personal accounts of Lex Silbiger, who escaped the Holocaust in the Netherlands at a young age, and Angeline Roberts, a survivor of the civil war in Liberia, and hear words of hope and strength from Reverend Dr. Bankole Akinbinu of Raleigh’s Baptist Grove Church. Gabriel Goldstein, consulting curator of Judaic Art, will describe ceremonial objects specific to a Seder from the NCMA’s Judaic Art Gallery.
