Event brings together students from different denominations to enjoy Passover Seder

On Tuesday March 27, The Leo Baeck Day School hosted its annual Interfaith Passover Seder with their Grade 8 class and students from Holy Rosary Catholic School and Islamic Foundation School.

The Interfaith Seder is a special event that brings together Jewish, Christian and Muslim youth in commemoration of an ancient story, central to our shared heritage: the story of Passover and the exodus of Jews from Egypt. It provides a unique opportunity to find common ground and draw new meaning from a narrative that depicts both slavery and freedom, themes still relevant today.

As a Jewish International Baccalaureate World School, we search for opportunities to better understand our roles as representatives of our Jewish faith and as global citizens in a connected world.

Through interfaith exchanges between the three schools, our students have discovered many more similarities than differences in their religions and social lives.They’ve also been given the chance to broaden their worldview and see themselves through a different lens.
