The Jewish Response To Racism
The hard-fought 2016 presidential campaign laid bare a national divide on a wide range of policy concerns and has energized a dangerous segment of our populace whose hateful rhetoric advanced from the margins to the mainstream. In response they'll discuss the connections and distinctions between racism and antisemitism, as well as the Jewish community’s responsibility to the fight for racial justice. The event takes place at the Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center, 10 East 66th Street, New York, NY 10065, on March 15 from 7-8:30pm.
The event is free, but you must RSVP HERE. If you would like to join us, email Robin Herman after signing up. See the Facebook event for additional details.
