The Interfaith Seder utilizes the historic and tradition-laden model of a Passover Seder to begin a conversation between students from Jewish and Catholic schools. Students have the opportunity to meet and become friends, breaking “bread” and creating art together. They discuss the Passover themes of freedom, responsibility, and tradition that form the backbone of respectful relationships. And, through discussion questions and activities, they engage in conversations that enable them to learn about each others’ faith traditions.
