Racial Justice Resources

In the Torah, Jews are taught to accept others, without prejudice or bias. The Torah states, "You shall not hate your kinsfolk in your heart. Reprove your kinsman, but incur no guilt because of him. You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against your countrymen. Love your fellow as yourself: I am the Eternal" (Leviticus 19: 17-18).

During the spring and summer of 2020, our community members, along with so many in the Jewish world, have recommitted ourselves to learning about our own biases and to exploring the steps we need to take to ensure that multicultural Jews feel fully welcome in our own community.  We recognize our responsbility to fight against structural racism here in our own city. On this webpage, you will find tools for your own education as well as concrete steps for becoming allies. This page will continue to be updated as our community continues to wake up to the racial injustice in our country and we discover ways to begin healing these inequities.
