This monthly program encourages active participation that leads to action for racial justice. Each session features a specific topic led by an expert guest moderator, and will also connect to a Jewish theme for that month. Prior to each session, participants will have preparation work, such as watching a video, listening to a podcast, reading an essay that illuminates the topic, or responding to reflective journal prompts. In our sessions we will share our advocacy work and reflections, study a Jewish text that connects with the topic, then anticipate our “step forward” for racial justice and tikkun olam.
All programs will take place from 8:15-9:30 pm on Zoom unless otherwise indicated.
