Jews of Color, Jewish Institutions, and Jewish Community in the Age of #BlackLivesMatter

Join Chizuk Amuno Congregation, the Jewish Museum of Maryland and a variety of speakers from rabbis to researchers to activists as we share, explore, and engage with the ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. In the present moment of growing awareness about the need for dramatic change in response to structural racism in our society, the importance of many perspectives and voices is unparalleled.
