Zioness – “Jews, Race, and American Jewish History”

July 7, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

With protests gripping the nation, so many American Jews are reflecting on systemic racism and ways we may be able to help. Join us TODAY at 5:00 PM PT / 8:00 PM ET for a candid, and probably difficult, journey through American Jewish history as we explore historical documents about Jews and racism with Professor Marc Dollinger, Richard & Rhonda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies at San Francisco State University.

We will think about what is means to “become American” and the ways that racism has played among and within the Jewish community. This conversation is an important step in understanding contemporary Black-Jewish relations, which will help us move forward with the context and knowledge to be the best possible allies in this urgent moment.

After the webinar, those who want to take direct action to advance the racial justice movement are encouraged to sign up to host a racial justice community conversation with Zionesses in their communities. These conversations will help people directly confront implicit biases, prepare them for solidarity work, and help them establish relationships with local racial justice organizations and leaders.
