About Be’chol Lashon
Be’chol Lashon (Hebrew for “in every language”) strengthens Jewish identity by raising awareness about the ethnic, racial and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. Be’chol Lashon’s workshops focus on understanding how Jewish wisdom and values can help us build a multiracial community rooted in racial justice; better understanding the racial paradigm of the United States and how we (as Jews) fit within; and reflecting on how implicit bias and behaviors create barriers to cultural competence.
