Racial Justice and Jewish Value
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America
Last summer’s widespread demonstrations responding to police violence against people of color reminded us that there is much work to be done in our country toward creating a just society. Join JTS scholars to explore how Jewish texts and tradition enrich our understanding of and response to racial injustice.
Re-examining the classic writings of Abraham Joshua Heschel and bringing Jewish perspectives to contemporary debates surrounding reparations and reproductive justice, we will discover the wisdom Jewish sources offer for reflection on questions of race. We will also discuss how JTS has been addressing racial justice internally as a model for other institutions.
The evening will begin with opening remarks, followed by three study sessions. More information can be found in the link.
