Past Sessions

This fall and winter we held three thoughtful and engaging programs on racial justice, and how we as a Jewish community can take on the work of anti-racism. Thank you to all who participated, and indicated their ideas for next steps in our survey.

In April, we will begin an anti-racism book group to read and discuss “So You Want to Talk About Race” by Ijeoma Oulo. We hope to create safe and brave space to do a deep dive into the themes and topics of the book, to be challenged and to grow from the experience, and to lay the foundation for action.

In order to allow for the richest experience, the group will be structured like this:

  • The groups will meet weekly for one-hour a week for 18 weeks (one week of introduction and group agreements, and one week for each chapter of the book.)
  • Each group will be limited in size to 15 individuals in order to allow for the most participation. We invite you to commit to a group even if you can’t make every single gathering, but this will not be a “drop-in” group.
  • Two timeslots are available: Sunday from 4-5 p.m. or Monday from 7-8 p.m.
  • Each group will be facilitated.
  • Books will be available to borrow from TBH.

Please register and join in this work. If more than 15 people are interested in a time slot then we will expand to multiple “sections.” And if you are interested and unable to commit right now, there is the possibility that we can run the group again once the cycle is finished.

Contact Rabbi Seth with any questions. Thanks to Mari Nowitz, Paul Paroff and Heather Rudich for organizing this group for our community!
