United Against Racism: Pursuing Justice as a Multiracial Jewish Community
In Pirkei Avot, Rabbi Tarfon writes: “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.” In this moment of racial reckoning, as our nation grapples with the insidious ways in which the legacy of slavery and institutionalized racism continues to infect our institutions and our policies, our faith must compel us to action. Join Bet Torah, Congregation B'nai Yisrael, Temple Israel of Northern Westchester and Temple Shaaray Tefila of Westchester for a frank conversation, via Zoom, with ADL regarding how we as Jews can continue to actively participate in campaigns for racial justice that have been led by communities of color, including Jews of Color, for decades. We will grapple with the questions of: "How can we support the Black Lives Matter movement as a multiracial Jewish community?" and "How can we resist those who seek to use antisemitism as a tool to distract and divide us in this moment"?

Sponsors: Bet Torah and ADL New York/New Jersey
Partners: Congregation B'nai Yisrael, Temple Israel of Northern Westchester and Temple Shaaray Tefila of Westchester
