Facilitated by Rabbi Amy Eilberg and Flaurie S. Imberman
 
In this year of national reckoning over racism in the U.S., many of us have followed Rabbi Chaim’s encouragement to engage in deep personal learning and introspection to better understand the working of racism in American society and our role in dismantling it.  In this four-session series, we go deeper in our understanding of systemic racism, using a variety of readings, recordings, interpersonal exercises, and open-hearted conversation.  We will take a deeper look at white privilege, implicit bias, unconscious participation in racist systems, and the question of white privilege for white Jews.  Finally, we will consider how Jewish teachings about teshuvah apply to our own anti-racist work as individuals, and about collective atonement for racism throughout American history.
 
Collaboratively designed and taught by Flaurie S. Imberman and Rabbi Amy Eilberg, the weekly sessions will meet on June 15th, 22nd, 29th, and July 6th from 7-8:30 PM.  Each session builds on the previous sessions. We encourage participants to make a commitment to attend all four sessions.  Registration required to receive Zoom information, register here.
