40 Days of Teshuvah Screening, Social, & Discussion
July 25, 2021 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm PDT
How can Jewish spiritual practices be integrated into our own efforts for repair and justice?
On Sun. July 25th 8-930 PT at the Silverlake Independent JCC, join Nefesh, East Side Jews, and Bend the Arc SoCal for a community screening and discussion of 40 Days of Teshuvah, a film by The Inside Out Wisdom and Action (IOWA) Project and filmmaker Hannah Roodman.
- The film runtime is 25 minutes, and time is included both before and after the screening for Jewish anti-racist activists from Nefesh’s White Jewish Anti-Racist Dialogue, Bend the Arc, and East Side Jews to meet each other, as well as take part in a discussion around the themes and spiritual tools present in the film.
The film revolves around summer 2020, when Yehudah Webster and Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ) protested for 40 days culminating with Tisha B’Av. This protest came to being after the murder of George Floyd and the racial justice uprising in 2020.
@The IOWA Project is a network of activists, educators, and spiritual leaders in the Jewish community supporting social justice leaders in exploring Jewish spiritual wisdom and developing Jewish spiritual practice.Register for 40 Days of Teshuvah Screening, Social, & Discussion
