Cultivating Anti-Racism

In the Spring of 2021, we piloted a "cultivating anti-racism" class. Our format is similar to what the Tikkun Middot classes were like -- one "theme" for every lesson, background readings (Jewish and general), discussion questions (meant to be in a class or small group), and homework (journaling, more reading, practical exercises--and always, checking in with a study partner to reflect on your experiences). The 10 themes we chose, line up with the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond's 10 undoing racism principles

The purpose of this lesson series is to provide people with a few more steps on the spiral path toward racial equity and collective liberation. We'd like to prepare the ground for a real conversation and commitment by the synagogue as a congregation to the ongoing practice and cultivation of anti-racism.

The lesson series will be open to the wider congregation starting in Fall 2021.

We may also plan other activities, trainings and programming that cultivate anti-racism. Past activities have included a trip to Montgomery, AL to experience the National Memorial for Peace and Justice a training by Yehudah Webster of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice on making a Brave Space; and a training by our rabbinic intern Sarah Barasch-Hagans about her Fargesn Media Project.
