A who is who of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim leaders descended on the Brooklyn Academy of Music on April 4 for an interfaith gala honoring Passover, Easter, and the anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.

The “Freedom’s Feast” celebrated the holidays with interactive performances of Easter stories as well as passages from the Haggadah, the Jewish text that dictates the Passover seder.

The event was a collaboration between developers Forrest City Ratner, the Auburn Theological Seminary, and Jewish community groups Bend the Arc, Kolot Chayeinu, and Lab-Shul.
