Connecticut’s First Lady Cathy Malloy, Sen. Edith Prague, Deacon Arthur Miller, head of Connecticut Black Catholics, Senate Chaplain Rev. David Baird, Rep. David Baram, Hillel directors Gary Wolff of UConn and Beth Rosenberg of CCSU, and Sandra Smith, director of the Newman Club of the University of Hartford, were among those who read aloud from a special Haggadah at the Second Annual Interfaith Hunger Seder that took place at the State Capitol on April 21. Hosted by the Jewish Federation Association of Connecticut (JFACT) and co-led by Rabbi David Small of The Emanuel Synagogue in West Hartford and Rev. Timothy Oslovich of Trinity Lutheran Church in Vernon, the seder was intended to raise awareness about the problem of hunger in Connecticut. Food donations were collected for area soup kitchens. The seder was also filmed for a documentary entitled “A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food and the Future,” which will air on ABC affiliated stations in December 2011.
