More than 200 people gathered on the top floor of the National Museum of American Jewish History on Independence Mall to celebrate freedom at a unique community seder.

The Second Annual Freedom Seder Revisited on April 2 included musicians, performers and speakers commemorating the original seder, which happened one week after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1969. The founder and leader of that seder, Rabbi Arthur Waskow, director of The Shalom Center, was also in attendance.
