Jewish Institutions: This Is What Jewish People of Color Need You to Know

Presented by District Community Playback Theatre

Conversations about race, ethnicity, space, and belonging have become central to Jewish thought and social action as 2020 moves toward an end and the new year of 5781 unfolds. These conversations are especially important when considering the experiences of Jews of Color within Jewish Institutions. Please join us for this special District Playback zoom performance. Capacity is limited for this performance, so please fill out this form ASAP to reserve your spot.

Join Chizuk Amuno Congregation, the Jewish Museum of Maryland and a variety of speakers from rabbis to researchers to activists as we share, explore, and engage with the ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. In the present moment of growing awareness about the need for dramatic change in response to structural racism in our society, the importance of many perspectives and voices is unparalleled.

This multi-program series will open up conversations about who we are as Jews; how Jewish spaces and institutions need to change; and how these changes can lead us to a more robust and inclusive Jewish community.

As programs are recorded they will be added to the individual event pages as well as the Jews of Color, Jewish Institutions, and Jewish Community in the Age of #BlackLivesMatter playlist.

CJC is a proud co-sponsor of this event.
