Join A Racial Justice Conversation on Sunday, January 31

Nevei Kodesh’s Tikkun Olam Sparks group is presenting a Racial Justice Conversation Sunday, January 31, 4:00 – 5:30 pm.

In this conversation, we’ll discuss a 20-minute video of Rabbi Buchdahl’s Yom Kippur Sermon.  Rabbi Buchdahl is the rabbi of Central Synagogue.  Her bio is here.

Please watch the 20-minute video below before coming.

Some of our conversation will be in the whole group, some in breakout rooms. Mindful that for people of color, listening to white people waking up to new understandings about racism can range from uncomfortable to wounding, we’ll set up the option of a breakout room specifically for people of color. If you’re a person of color who wants to think this through, please contact Debbie Zucker at dzucker3@gmail.com.

Debbie Zucker will be facilitating the program. Debbie lives in Denver and has been a Nevei Kodesh member since 2008.  Since 2015 Debbie has been consulting to organizations and congregations seeking to become actively anti-racist. Please contact her with any questions you might have about this program, or this work generally, at dzucker3@gmail.com.
