With our national reckoning on race, so many American Jews are reflecting on systemic racism and ways we may be able to help. Join us for a candid, and probably difficult, journey through American Jewish history as we explore historical documents about Jews and racism. We will think about what is means to “become American” and the ways that racism has played among and within the Jewish community.  Today's lunch and learn will be lead by 

Marc Dollinger, an expert in the fields of Jews and American politics, American Zionism and California Jews, with a Ph.D., in History from UCLA, leads our learning.  His new book, Black Power, Jewish Politics, has been controversial.

There will be two debriefing sessions of up to 10 rabbis to 

1. Delve more deeply into what we heard and explore our feelings and questions raised during the presentation 

2. Begin to think about next steps 

Thursday, May 27 from 12 noon to 1 pm

Tuesday, June 1 from 12 noon to 1 pm
