Jews and Blacks in the Civil Rights Era: Midrash and Fact – Temple Beth-El

November 22, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Sliding scale

We welcome Billy Planer back to explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish and Black communities during the Civil Rights era. Why were there Jews on both sides, and the sidelines, of the Civil Rights movement? What was the role of Judaism in the activism of young people in the 1960s? What are the implications for the streets of America today? This is an important program for us as we begin a congregational conversation about racial justice and equity.

We’ve heard many of you express a desire for social connection and are expanding our virtual programming to include small group discussions. On select programs, we’ll invite you to stay on the Zoom immediately following, for 15-20 minutes of discussion and kibitzing in small group break out rooms. Think of this as the time after the program where you’d usually linger and chat!

This is a pay-what-you can event and participants are asked to contribute as much or are little as they are comfortable with, so that we can provide this event affordably for all. Acontributing amount of $5 – $35 is suggested, but not required.
