Pathways to Freedom: Immigration Shabbat Dinner

(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer)















JArts Kabbalat Shabbat Dinners return with this Pathways to Freedom  dinner/discussion on immigration with artist Julia Vogl and UMass Boston faculty members Rosalyn Negron (Ethnicity), Vincent Cannato (History), Kenneth Reardon (Public Policy) and Janice Goldman (Leadership).  Share your family’s stories about the pathways they took to reach America as we explore the history of immigration and its impact on communities today.

This is an ideal  opportunity to participate in the Pathways project. Your answer to four questions about freedom will become part of Vogl’s  larger than life visual representation of the responses from hundreds of people from across the area. Inspired by the universal themes of Passover, the installation will be on display on the Boston Common during Art Week (beginning April 27). This program was made possible by Jewish Life and Learning
