In line with BJ’s anti-racism work, this havurah will explore the issue of race through arts and culture. By engaging with various performing arts, visual arts, cultural locations, and readings, we can interact with stories concerning race on a visceral, emotional level, and bring that into other social justice work. We intend to meet 6 times during the year to attend and/or discuss these works.
Group Leaders: Abby Katz and Ted Berger
Location: Various, throughout New York City, depending on which cultural outings we choose. Group discussions will be held in havurah members’ apartments or other mutually agreed upon locations.
*This havurah is offered as part of ‘Race and Us,’ BJ’s year long initiative exploring race in Jewish identity, Jewish community, and American society
