Educating Ourselves About Race in America: How to Be Comfortable Having Uncomfortable Conversations
Tuesday, August 18 @7:00pm-8:15pm
Open to all Shaaray Tefila Members
Join us as together we continue our journey toward racial justice with a program that moves us from listening to talking. Don’t miss this interactive presentation led by Billy Planer, Director of Etgar 36 (and longtime friend of Shaaray Tefila), highlighting strategies for having these important and necessary conversations. How do we discuss topics of race without “all the heat”? How can you practice self-care as you enter into these conversations? How can we rethink what success looks like in difficult conversations? This program will include a moderated Q&A led by Rabbi Reines.
Haven’t attended any of our previous “Educating Ourselves About Race in America” programs? No problem! You are welcome – and we encourage you – to register below and join us.
