28 Days. 4 Nights. 1 Book.

The month of Elul (August 21–September 18, 2020) is a period for introspection and cheshbon hanefesh (an accounting of the soul) in preparation for the High Holy Days. By utilizing Layla Saad’s Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestorthe Beth Am Clergy will lead us in a communal project of cheshbon hanefesh during the 29 days of Elul. Each week, we will gather to explore the themes – and discuss the myriad questions posed in each chapter–of this book that “leads readers through a journey of understanding their white privilege and participation in white supremacy, so that they can stop (often unconsciously) inflicting damage on black, indigenous and people of color, and in turn, help other white people do better, too.”

We will meet for four sessions (three Thursdays and one Wednesday from 7:30–9:00 PM):

  • Thursday, August 27
  • Thursday, September 3
  • Thursday, September 10
  • Wednesday, September 16

We will begin the sessions together, and then break into 5 groups, each led by a member of the clergy. Space is limited to 125 participants who can commit to acquiring and reading the book, and to attending all four sessions on Zoom. Depending on interest, we will offer this reflective opportunity again later in the year.
