1:00 PM - 4:00 PM11410 Old Georgetown Rd, North Bethesda, MD 20852

Josiah Henson Museum & Park is the former plantation property of Isaac Riley where Reverend Josiah Henson was enslaved. This park is a historic resource of local, state, national and international significance because of its association with Reverend Henson, whose 1849 autobiography, The Life of Josiah Henson, Formerly a Slave, Now an Inhabitant of Canada, inspired Harriet Beecher Stowe’s landmark novel, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Click here for more information on the museum. 

HAZAK's visit coincides with the celebration of Passover and the escape from Egypt and slavery to freedom. The discussion will focus on the changes necessary to embrace freedom and our commitment to freedom as a basic foundational human right in our Jewish tradition.
