History as the story of universal progress from oppression to liberty began, according to the story, about 3,200 years ago.

Come join in a community Seder retelling the historic story of emancipation for many strands of humanity, and a Seder pointing the way to a comprehensive, practical Promised Land for all people.

Seder is the evening supper celebrating Passover, that quasi-historic, certainly legendary story of Moses leading the Hebrew people out of slavery in ancient Egypt, and on their way to the land of Canaan. It's a moving story of humanity's dignity and just desserts in occupying a secure geography.

At this Multi-plex Seder of Our Times, participants will pick up a script (Haggadah) of their choice and participate in a parallel interactive supper retelling of

the emancipation of African-Americans, featuring Sojourner Truth as Moses, and "forty acres and a mule" as the Promised Land; or

the emancipation of the Irish from English colonialism 1845-1851, featuring Dr. Nulty, Bishop of Meath, as Moses, and The Irish Land League as the Promised Land; or

the emancipation of the evicted, displaced, and homeless of San Francisco, featuring Henry George as Moses, and the land values of San Francisco as the Promised Land; or

the emancipation of 19th century care-worn, indigent Chinese emigrants, featuring Sun-yat Sen as Moses, and Hong Kong under renewed Chinese rule as the Promised Land; or

the emancipation of Mexican "illegals", featuring Lazaro Cardenas as Moses, and anti-latifundia as the Promised Land; or

the emancipation of Palestinians, featuring an as yet unidentified figure as Moses, with Palestine as the Promised Land; or

the classic tale of the emancipation of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt, featuring Moses as Moses, and Israel as the Promised Land.
