Join in a “How to Be an Antiracist” Discussion, Shabbat Service

Congregation Bonai Shalom stands against racism, yet racism is real in our nation and Boulder County – even affecting members of our own congregation. We at Bonai Shalom are committed to listening, using our voices to amplify others, and opening our hearts and minds to new ways of seeing the world and pursuing justice. 

As a springboard to effective action, we are learning context and sharpening our listening skills. We invite you to join our congregation-wide book discussion of “How to Be an Antiracist,” by Ibram Kendi, sponsored by the Response to Racism Committee:  November 8, 2020, at 4 pm. Click HERE TO REGISTER and learn more about the event. 

Bonai will also be hosting a special Shabbat service with Reverend Pedro Silva of First Congregational Church in Boulder, to reflect on racism and religion. Saturday, November 7th at 9:30 am. Click HERE to view on Livestream. 

We hope you will join us for these important and meaningful conversations. Visit us online to view our full calendar of upcoming events and services. 

“The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it – and then dismantle it.” – Ibram Kendi, How to Be an Antiracist.
