NLURC Participates in Hunger Seder


Reverend Max Rodas of NLURC was proud to take part in The Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Hunger Seder. The Passover Seder is a Jewish tradition, consisting of a ritual meal, wine, storytelling, and prayer.

This year, The Jewish Federation of Cleveland used the Seder as an opportunity to open an interfaith dialogue about global hunger and poverty. Community members of varying faiths and backgrounds gathered together to share and discuss ways to better connect hungry people with the food they desperately need.
