Presented by B'chol Lashon
As the Jewish community becomes more racially, ethnically and culturally diverse, Be’chol Lashon seeks to bring the historic Jewish commitment to civil rights and racial justice forward into the 21st century, providing new opportunities for Jewish professionals and others to actively engage in conversations about race, ethnicity and identity. Jewish wisdom that has evolved over millennia around the world has much to contribute to cultural competence—the ability to ask questions and navigate difference—an essential part of Jewish identity. The training unpacks the politics of race in America today and raises awareness of race in a Jewish context. We give individuals the tools to think about their own racial identities and share best practices on how to talk about race. It is important to create an environment of inquiry and openness to talk about race and its impact on individuals and their community.
