Teshuvah in Our Times: Anti-Racism Learning Group

The High Holiday season is traditionally a time for self-reflection and heshbon ha-nefesh (personal accounting).  This group will bring that spirit to the work of anti-racism, exploring how we can promote racial justice as individuals and as members of the Jewish community.

Participants will meet virtually for three weeks during the High Holiday season, forming a cohort together and grappling with the question of teshuvah (return / repentance) in our times.

Community Pods offer an opportunity for meaningful conversation with your friends on your own time. You choose the people, the time, and the topic you want to talk about - we'll send you a conversation guide and make sure you have everything you need!

Topics include Jewish or Jew-ish,

Silver Linings, Born to Create, and Responsibility & Community.
