Everyone who identifies as white is welcome; whether or not you have attended these meetings in the past, we’d love to have you! This affinity group is part of Kehilla’s Belonging & Allyship Racial Justice Project.
We meet every other month to share feelings, build skills and discuss / take action around decentering whiteness at Kehilla – striving to make Kehilla more welcoming to People of Color.
Questions? Contact Susan Shulman, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s our suggested Homework for March 11:
1 – How I Can Offer Reparations in Direct Proportion to my White Privilege By Chris Moore-Backman
2 – Hanukkah anti-Semitism Requires a Response, But We Cannot Fight Hatred with More Hatred by Carin Mrotz and R. Michael Adam:
3 – We’re suggesting folks try this exercise for the next 2 months!: Whenever you’re talking about doing something with white Jews, SAY ‘my white Jewish ‘ friend instead of ‘my Jewish’ friend (etc.) in conversation . See how defining the Jewish friend as white highlights the fact that some Jews are NOT white — but that often our assumption is that all Jews are white. Notice how this feels when you do it, and notice how others respond!
And, as always, please meet with your buddy and discuss these or anything else that’s coming up for you. If you don’t yet have a buddy, we can match you up with someone when you come to the meeting. Hope to see you March 11.
In the Heschel Room.
