White Jewish Antiracist Continuing Dialogue

Sunday, January 17 — 4:30pm

This series will focus on further developing and understanding our identities as anti-racist White Jews through dialogue, exploration, learning and spiritual practice. Together we will delve into the impacts of racism and anti-Semitism and the cultivation of a positive anti-racist White Jewish identity, using the Middot/traits as framework and guide. We will also share resources for learning and action. We look forward to creating a brave space, built on trust and support, and engaging in this work with you.
