Beth Am’s Racial Justice and Equity Initiative will be convening another set of 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?

Both Irene and Kristen are longtime and grateful members of Beth Am. Irene is a software professional and facilitator, who cares deeply about facing our truths in this evolving world. Kristen is a writer, teacher and facilitator, who grew up in Atlanta, where folks acknowledge that race is at the heart of our struggles and possibilities. Join us for deep conversation about this important topic, and to be able to share our experiences as we all grow together!
