Slavery Past and Present – A Pre-Passover Presentation

In a few days we will be telling the story of the exodus of Egypt at our Passover seder, recalling how “we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt”. But living in the comforts of the US in 2010, can we relate to our enslaved ancestors who lived more than 3,300 years ago? Well this year you can!

This coming Thursday morning, March 25th, Mr. Francis Bok will retell his story of his own experiences as a child slave in present-day Sudan. His story will fascinate you but more importantly allow you to relate to the Passover story with a whole new meaning.  The event will be held at the Westin Westminster, 10600 W. Westminster Blvd., Westminster from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and the cost is $13.00.  SPACE IS LIMITED so please register at www.theChabadHouse.com.

For more information on the event, please visit www.JewishBusinessGroup.com. To RSVP please email info@JewishBusinessGroup.com.

More information for Mr. Francis Bok can be found here at Wikipedia.
