HOW TO BE COMFORTABLE HAVING UNCOMFORTABL ECONVERSATIONS: TURN DOWN THE HEAT

America is so split that trying to speak across the divide feels impossible. Whether it is one on one, with friends, family or your community, discussions about race, politics or Israel seem to be too heated and contentious to have. How can we have these important and necessary conversations without “all the heat”? How can you practice self-care as you enter into uncomfortable conversations? How to rethink what success looks like during a difficult conversation.

Join us for this timely virtual conversation with Billy Planer of Etgar 36, an “independent, pluralistic, nonpartisan and nonprofit Jewish educational venture.” Etgar 36leads Civil Rights journeys in the Southeast, drawing on history to empower groups to take action. This is a pay-what-you can event and we will be asking participants to register ahead of time.  Reach out to mnorman@templebeth-el.net with questions and register here: https://templebethel.nirsham.com/form/etgar-convo
