Passover Seder in a Los Angeles synagogue with Marlon Brando and Bob Dylan

'When Marlon Brando made me a Pessah offer I couldn't refuse'
By JERUSALEM POST STAFF

A few weeks ago, as he began preparing material for our Pessah supplements, The Jerusalem Post's Managing Editor Steve Linde placed a small ad in the paper inviting readers to submit amazing but true Pessah stories. More than 100 flooded in, several of which appear in our April 8 Pessah supplement - and none more wonderful than Minnesota businessman Louie Kemp's account of his Seder in a Los Angeles synagogue more than two decades ago with Marlon Brando and Bob Dylan.

Kemp had gotten to know Brando years earlier through a mutual friend and would visit him in LA.

One of his visits to LA happened to coincide with Pessah, and Kemp had made plans to attend a Seder at a local synagogue with his sister.

"Marlon became audibly excited over the phone and said, 'Passover - I've always wanted to attend a Seder.'" Could he come along, he asked? "He had made me an offer I couldn't refuse."
