Join JFREJ at Shavuot Across Brooklyn
May 19, 2018 @ 10:00 pm - May 20, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Join JFREJ for two exciting sessions at CBE’s Shavuot Across Brooklyn.
Anti-Semitism on the Left
10 PM, Location TBD
The study of Torah leads many Jews to work toward freedom and justice for all people, whether that’s standing with Black Lives Matter, the Women’s March, the LGBT Rights movement, or others. Join Rabbi Rachel Timoner of CBE, Audrey Sasson of Jews for Racial and Economic Justice, and Rabbi Josh Weinberg of the Association of Reform Zionists of America, as we bring different perspectives to these questions: How do we respond when movements for justice include anti-Semitic voices, are indifferent to anti-Semitism, or ignore the voices of Jews? When is anti-Zionism anti-Semitism? How should we understand the relationship between the struggle for Black liberation, the prevalence of white supremacy, and the ongoing threat of anti-Semitism? This will be followed by a second session looking at the Movement for Black Lives Platform through the lens of Torah.
Shavuot for Black Lives
