Oppression and Jewish Identity

Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at 7:00pm

 

Presented by Jews United for Justice

 

 

Join JUFJ and other Jewish partners for the first in a series of workshops around confronting and healing from our relationship to white supremacy. At this first workshop on July 9th, we will situate our lived experiences as Jewish people carrying multiple identities within a society built upon structural oppression, through facilitated activities and dialogue. To be more effective in the struggle for racial and economic justice, we must do the work to understand and heal ourselves. Come to the convening and join us in this learning – RSVP here: https://jufj.org/event/baltimore-july-community-convening/.

 

Note: This workshop series is built through a Jewish lens, and all folks are welcome if they feel moved to attend.

 

JUFJ’s White Supremacy Workshop Series is generously funded by The Kolker-Saxon-Hallock Family Foundation Inc., A Supporting Foundation of the Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.

Besa: Albanian Promises Kept

Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 7pm

 

This program takes place at Baltimore Hebrew Synagogue

 

Speakers: Eli Neumann and Benjy Neumann

Albania, a small Muslim-majority country, proved a surprising refuge for the Jewish community of central Europe during the Holocaust. Thanks to Besa, an Albanian concept sometimes translated as “pledge of honor,” and an oath sworn by much of the population requiring individuals to come to the aid of those in need, this country became a safe haven for Jews escaping Nazi persecution. Join us as we hear the story of one family’s experience from second generation survivors Eli and Benjy Neumann.

 

The presentation will be followed by a facilitated discussion and light refreshments (dietary laws observed). This program is part of the Recovery & Renewal: The Immigration Experience series, presented in partnership with Baltimore Hebrew Congregation. The Recovery & Renewal series is made possible through the generosity of the Lois Rosenfield Caring Fund of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.

 

This program is presented in relation to the Stitching History from the Holocaust exhibit, on view April 7 – August 4, 2019. Tickets to public programs include admission to the Museum.
