Freedom Song:
One Family's Struggle with Addiction. One Nation's Path to Recovery.
Sunday, November 4, 2018-12:30 pm-2:00 pm 

Reserve your tickets HERE.

By interweaving a Passover Seder with personal stories of addiction, Freedom Song poses one stark question, “What are you a slave to?” The cast of this original musical are not actors; they are actual addicts in recovery that have broken off the shackles of drugs, alcohol, gambling, and other destructive behaviors. Using song and dance, tears and laughter, and a powerful post-show discussion with the cast, Freedom Song will open your eyes to the real life struggle against the ‘bondage of self’ that many fight every day.

Event Co-sponsors: Am Shalom, BJBE, Congregation Solel, Congregation Sukkat Shalom, Congregation Hakafa, Har-Shalom Synagogue, Jewish Child & Family Services, Lakeside Congregation for Reform Judaism, North Shore Congregation Israel
