Critical Conversations: Jews & Race

Hosted By: Spertus Institute for Jewish Learning and Leadership

Critical Conversations is an annual Spertus Institute program inspired by Judaism’s embrace of civil discourse. The series brings together high-profile experts and activists to debate the most critical issues of the day.

This year, in two online events, April 27 and May 10, 2021, our trio of presenters will focus on race and justice—and their juncture in Jewish life. The program will take place at 7 p.m. Central Time/ 8 p.m. Eastern.
