 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 Diane Frankle. Diane is co-founder of a new nonprofit Building Bridges Together, offering interfaith dialogue programs to Jewish, Christian and Muslim faith communities across the United States, is a recovering Silicon Valley corporate lawyer and serves on her college alma mater’s Board of Trustees, where she co-chairs the Board’s Racial Equity Task Force; she has been a member of Congregation Beth Am since 1987.
