Cultivating Anti-Racism / Dismantling White Supremacy Class

Once a month on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm
Register here

Teachers: Rabbi Ariann Weitzman, Shana Stein, Barbara Reisman, Noemi Giszpenc, Ellen Kolba and Deb Levy. 

Hillel said: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?" This course approaches white supremacy from our perspective as Jews and members of a Jewish community. What is our role and responsibility? How do those of us who are white, or white adjacent, benefit from racist structures? How are we all oppressed by them? We have modified the course in response to feedback from participants and members who are interested in participating. Instead of twice a month, the class will meet once a month for a total of 6 meetings, November- April. This will be a Part One of the course, and there will be a Part Two next year. We will meet in person at BK, rather than over Zoom.     

It is written in Pirkei Avot, "You are not obligated to complete the work but neither are you free to desist from it."
