The Ninth Annual Cape Verdean-Jewish Passover Seder will take place April 10 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Hibernian Hall, located at 184 Dudley St. in Roxbury, Mass. During the Seder—the meal celebrating the Jewish holiday of Passover—Jews commemorate the biblical exodus of Jewish slaves from Egypt. At this free event, Cape Verdeans and Jews sit down to explore the values and experiences they hold in common, including their mutual search for independence.
Cape Verdean and Jewish youth are some of the Seder’s most active organizers. The young people collaborate to plan Seder events and learn about each other’s communities in the process. This year, one of the event’s two co-chairs is Aicha Tavares, a 17-year-old Cape Verdean high school student. She and the other Cape Verdean young people have prepared a dance recital, and Jewish youth will also perform for Seder attendees.
