A Shabbat Dinner to Share Stories

A Shabbat Dinner to Share Stories

by Joey Baron

As part of the Pathways to Freedom public art project, we’ll be talking with hundreds of people across Greater Boston to share their stories of immigration and perspectives on freedom. What a great topic for a Shabbat dinner table conversation!

We hope you join us and share your family’s immigration story at our Pathways to Freedom Shabbat Dinner on Friday, March 23, 6:30 pm at the Highland Woman’s Club, 72 Columbus Street in Newton Highlands (just two blocks from the Highlands stop on the Green Line). Enjoying a delicious fish meal, we’ll share our family stories (legend has it my grandfather was a stowaway) and learn more about immigration with artist Julia Vogl and UMass Boston faculty members Rosalyn Negron (Ethnicity), Vincent Cannato (History), Kenneth Reardon (Public Policy) and Janice Goldman (Leadership).

You’ll also help create the Pathways project. Your answers 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 Boston Common April 25-May 2.

Dinner tickets are $55 and are available here.

Let’s share some wine, challah and stories together.
