A PANEL DISCUSSION WEBINAR WITH ERIC GREENE, GINNA GREEN AND BILLY PLANER

 

Over the past year Congregation Rodef Sholom has been taking steps toward becoming an anti-racist synagogue and the journey continues. Hear from three nationally prominent Jewish racial justice advocates in a panel discussion, moderated by Joanne Greene, that will explore what a truly anti-racist community could look like. The panelists will explore critical conversations about race and racism, inequity within the Jewish community, Jewish allyship, points of intersection and divergence between racism and anti-Semitism, and how the Jewish community is uniquely positioned to address the inherent complexities in these issues. Please join us.
