March 14, 2021, 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Presented by SOJAC in partnership with AJC Westchester/Fairfield
We have another exciting conversation coming up on Sunday morning, March 14 at 10:00am, in partnership with AJC Westchester-Fairfield. Rabbi Noam Marans, AJC’s Director of Interreligious and Intergroup Relations, will be speaking with us on Navigating Black-Jewish Conversations and we need your help!
American Jews recall fondly our community’s role in the Civil Rights movement in the 1950’s and 1960’s and the warm relationship between the organized Black and Jewish communities at that time. At a time when racial and ethnic tensions, and hate crimes – both anti-Semitic and anti-Black – have risen to levels not seen in decades, our alliance, despite its long history, has become increasingly complex to navigate.
Following antisemitic comments by Nick Cannon and other Black celebrities, Rabbi Marans befriended and conducted public dialogues with Cannon, revealing both significant challenges and potential pathways forward in Black-Jewish relations (see one at https://www.facebook.com/
We hope that you will not only mark this program on your calendar, but help to shape it by sharing with us the questions you’d like Rabbi Marans to discuss. Please reply to let Sondra and me know whether you can join us and what you hope we will cover.
