Registration for this group is now closed.

Beth Am’s Racial Justice and Equity Initiative will be convening several small groups of 5-10 participants to meet for a series of 6 sessions about how we face our truths about race, privilege, power and the biases that we all hold. Groups will be facilitated by trained congregants. The sessions are based on wonderful materials prepared by clergy and staff from Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles, CA, and Temple Isaiah in Lexington, MA.  Session topics will be:

  • Introduction and Overview: Developing a Sense of Trust in the Group,  Establishing Relationships
  • White Fragility
  • Racism and White Supremacy — A Human Construct
  • Post-Slavery Incarceration as a Means of Control
  • Looking within Our Jewish Community
  • How Are We Responsible/Accountable?

Facilitated by Irene Lefton. Irene is a longtime Beth Am member and a professional facilitator who cares deeply about facing our truths in this evolving world.  Join us for deep conversation about this important topic and share our experiences so we all grow together!
