When Rabbi Robert Kravitz pulled off his tie at the Latino-Jewish Seder on March 21, he said it was symbolic of seeking freedom. Wearing a tie, he said, is a custom that feels confining and men do it to themselves out of social convention. So he liberated himself of the tie and continued leading the seder, reading from the “Freedom Celebration Haggadah” created for this annual event.

In reading from the Haggadah, Rabbi Kravitz also provided an update about some of the past attendees who are quoted in the margins of this “Freedom Celebration” – including Rabbi Yosef Garcia, chief rabbi of the Crypto-Jewish movement, and Rabbi Andrew Straus, former spiritual leader of Temple Emanuel of Tempe.
