Racial Justice in Our Communities

Rabbi Sandra Lawson, Associate Chaplain for Jewish Life and Jewish Educator at Hillel at Elon University

Mondays, Jan. 14, 28, Feb. 11, from 6-7pm EST

How can we effect change in our communities to recognize the ethnic and racial diversity of American Jews? How can we deal effectively with the racism that permeates many Jewish spaces? As the American Jewish population changes, becoming more diverse and reflecting the makeup of larger American society, there is still an unspoken assumption that most American Jews are white/Ashkenazi. We call on rabbis and community leaders to join us in a series of conversations about how to recognize and combat racism within the Jewish community in order to create a more inclusive community for all.
