We are excited to bring Kavod to our community to lead us in their 5 part series Our Liberation is Bound Together: Combatting Racism, Anti-Semitism and White Supremacy Thursdays from 7pm-9pm beginning on May 27.
About the Series:
Kavod’s workshop series explores the Jewish obligation to create a more just world. We imagine a world in which Jews of all racial and ethnic backgrounds build authentic, sustained solidarity with one another and in deep relationship with other communities targeted by white supremacy.
The workshop series first examines the social construction of race, and the consequences of this social construction in the United States throughout history and into the present. Looking inwards, participants evaluate their personal racial identity and family history to identify how they have benefited from and/or been harmed by racism and antisemitism. Participants also identify the varied, interlocking ways in which white supremacy operates ideologically, institutionally, internally, and interpersonally in the United States.
Then, participants move to action, studying historical examples of Jewish involvement in racial justice work and applying lessons learned to the contemporary needs of the racial justice movement. Participants leave with a commitment toward concrete action to begin or expand their community’s racial justice work.
