Interfaith Seder at Islamic Center of Claremont this weekend

Locals of all faiths are invited to gather at the Passover table for an "Interfaith Seder Experience" this Sunday, March 24 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Islamic Center of Claremont, 3642 N. Garey Ave.

The Claremont Interfaith Working Group, along with students at the Claremont Lincoln University and the Claremont School of Theology, will host the event, now in its third year. Though modeled on the traditional Jewish ritual, all faith groups are invited to participate and share their own "freedom stories" as those of the Jewish faith remember their freedom from the Egyptians' enslavement.

"We hope to continue to bridge that which divides us and create common ground through sharing our experiences with our neighbors," said Cantor Paul Buch of Temple Beth Israel, one of the event's organizers.

Those interested in participating in the Interfaith gathering can make a reservation by visiting, emailing or calling the event's hotline at 542-8150.
