FaithFULL: The Theology of Passover and Easter (For Interfaith Couples) (National) – Online

March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT


Passover and Easter–two very different holidays that both happen around spring and involve food and family. Are there any other similarities? What exactly is at the heart of both of these holidays? Let’s take Passover and Easter a little deeper and explore the theological differences between the holidays with Rukin Rabbinic Fellowship Alumnus Rabbi Steven Philp of Mishkan Chicago, Rev. Jason Lydon from Second Unitarian Church of Chicago, and Rev. Alka Lyall of Broadway United Methodist Church. Bring the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about these holidays, and find out what these theological differences can mean in your interfaith home.

This program is intended for interfaith couples.




Meet Rabbi Steven Philp

Steven Philp is an Associate Rabbi at Mishkan Chicago. He was ordained by the Jewish Theological Seminary where he was a Wexner Graduate Fellow. Steven earned an M.St. in Jewish Studies from the University of Oxford and an M.Div. and M.S.W. from the University of Chicago.

Steven grew up in California and Hawaii, as a Roman Catholic with a strong Protestant heritage. He became passionate about interfaith work while in college, a path that eventually led him to convert to Judaism. Steven is excited to work with 18Doors, helping others find communities that affirm their whole selves. He currently lives in Boystown with his cat Miso.


Meet Rev. Alka Lyall

Rev. Alka Lyall is a life-long Methodist from India, and is an ordained in the United Methodist Church currently serving Broadway United Methodist Church.

Alka desires to share the love of God, which welcomes all people, with all the people of God but especially with those who have been rejected, refused and forgotten by the church. She enjoys crocheting, and working on puzzles in her free time.


Meet Rev. Jason Lydon

Rev. Jason Lydon is the settled minister at the Second Unitarian Church of Chicago. Jason’s ministry has focused on queer liberation and prison abolition with passionate dedication to pastoral care and relational work. When not busy churching you can find Jason swimming with the Chicago Smelts, an LGBTQ swim team.
