Thursdays, March 4th and 11th, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
On Rosh Hashana, Rabbi Josh Dorsch called our community to action to stand up for racial justice. We will explore what that call to action requires of each of us in a two-session online workshop to examine identity and privilege in support of Tifereth Israel’s efforts to move towards becoming more of an anti-racist organization.
Thursday, March 4th
In the first session, participants will have the opportunity to engage with one another in a guided conversation, with the opportunity to both share unique perspectives and connect meaningfully with one another on the topic of identity, privilege, and racism within our own Jewish community.
Thursday, March 11th
In the second session, participants will explore what it looks like and sounds like to be a supportive anti-racist community and initiate a conversation about the actions needed to work towards making this happen in our congregation.
This workshop is supported by the County of San Diego HHSA as part of the Live Well Exchange initiative.
This complimentary workshop is open to all. Your advance registration will help us in planning but it is no way required.
