Hosts and guests will reflect on lessons from the series as a whole, considering such questions as: What is the relationship between Jewishness and whiteness? How does the study of race and racism enrich our understanding of religion? Of Jewishness? How does scholarship on race and racism make a practical difference in society?

Participating in the roundtable will be: lecturer Shana Sippy, Anne Albert, Mira Wasserman, Steve Weitzman and special guest Analucía Lopezrevoredo.
