Rabbi Sandra Lawson, a chaplain at Elon University in North Carolina, and Tema Smith, a contributing columnist at The Forward, will talk with Editor-in-Chief Jodi Rudoren, about the holiday that celebrates the end of slavery in the United States, and how Jews are — and should and could be — marking it this year.
