Passover Satsang

Passover Satsang with Rev. Sam Rudra Swartz, IYM

Saturday, April 15 • 5:30–6:30 p.m.

Passover is a major Jewish spring festival; it commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. The holiday lasts for eight days, starting from the full moon in the Hebrew month of Nisan. At this Satsang, Rev. Sam Rudra Swartz will look at the similarities between the Passover holiday and the concept of the jivamuktan, a liberated soul, from the Yogic tradition while offering some of the customs traditionally observed during the Passover holiday. All are welcome.
