Building an Anti-Racist Jewish Community
With Yavilah McCoy
Sunday, February 21, 4pm PST
Hosted by Kehillah Community Synagogue and co-sponsored by Chochmat HaLev
What does consciously anti-racist Jewish community look like? How can the process of building such a community deepen our awareness of structural racism and activate our capacities for collective liberation? Relevant to all who are engaged in uprooting racism, creating spiritual community, or passionate about Jewish culture, we invite you to join us as we launch our deepest work yet on the path to racial justice. Open to all.
This event features Yavilah McCoy and the voices of Kehilla’s Black, Indigenous, and People of Color leaders as they explore ways to create Jewish communities that center the lives of Jews of Color and dismantle white supremacy.
