On March 29, 2003 The Flint Journal reported that "more than 80 adults and children shared food, drink and information Tuesday at Congregation Beth Israel as they joined in an interfaith seder, the feast commemorating the exodus of the Jews from Egypt... The seder drew people of various faiths to the second annual program sponsored by the local Interfaith Clergy Council... Ken Kawasaki and his wife, Visakha, who operate a Buddhist Relief Mission in Flint, attended their first seder... 'I think it is important for all religious groups to get together and gain an understanding of one another,' Ken Kawasaki said."
