Dates: October 19, October 26, November 2, November 9 and November 16
This five-session online workshop organized by Kavod explores the Jewish obligation to create a more just world by examining the connection between racism and antisemitism throughout history and into the present. We will explore questions such as:
- What is my assigned racial identity? How might that differ from my felt or perceived racial identity?
- How have we, as Jews with diverse identities, benefited from and/or been oppressed by an evolving definition of whiteness?
- How does antisemitism function and what is its role in upholding the white power structure?
- What is the nature and impact of white supremacy as it exists in its current form in the U.S.?
- How can we better understand connections between our liberation as Jews and the liberation of other groups targeted by white supremacy?
