10:00am - 4:30pm Central
On Sunday, February 6th all are welcome to join us for a day of learning on racial justice as a Chicagoland Jewish community. This day will be multifaceted and have programming for all ages. It will provide space to speak about white supremacy, to discuss the nature of racism in Jewish life, and to hold up the diversity of our Jewish community. We will learn from many teachers, most of whom identify as Jews of Color (JOC), we will reflect, and we will pray. This year our day’s theme is learning from the past to create a more equitable future.
PROGRAMMING WILL INCLUDE:
– Opportunities for children and families to learn about racial justice in the Jewish community.
– A special program for teens.
– A college program created by Chicago’s Hillel Social Justice Springboard Fellows.
– Space for Jews of Color and their families to gather.
– Over a dozen sessions on topics ranging from the creation of race, food and Jewish diversity, and racism and economic inequality.
This event is hosted in collaboration with 18 Doors, JCUA, JUF, Keshet, Repair the World, Base Andersonville, Metro Chicago Hillel, and others!
