Continuing Our Racial Justice Work: A Seder on Privilege, Power, and Race

Sunday, April 2 | 3:15-7:00PM (doors open at 3:00PM) | 88th Street Sanctuary
Earlier this year, BJ launched a racial justice initiative with the primary goal of exploring how issues of race, privilege, and power play out in our lives individually and within the BJ community. On April 2, we will take the next collective step in this work using the Pesah seder and its themes of liberation as a guide. Join us for singing, storytelling, and an in depth anti-racism workshop led by educator Diane Goodman.

The workshop is appropriate for adults and teens. During this portion of the event, separate programming will be available for children of all ages. We will conclude all together with dinner and song.

This event is for BJ members only. Please be sure to register so that we can plan our catering accordingly. Register here

Support for this seder, and for BJ’s ongoing racial justice work, comes from a generous bequest from Linda Robbins Levine. Linda’s daughters, Lauren, Audrey, & Hilary Levine and her dear friends, Steve Stulman and Jeannie Blaustein, who all share Linda’s lifelong passion and commitment to social justice, have collaborated with us to honor Linda and carry her legacy forward by helping BJ advance this conversation in our community.
