October 27th marks the one year anniversary of the tragic Tree of Life shooting in Pittsburgh, where seven people were killed while attending Shabbat morning services. The attack was yet another devastating manifestation of the hatred and violence that is fueled by White Nationalism, a growing movement that has also threatened and harassed members of the UNC community and that must be interrupted. To better understand what we as Jews are up against and how we can transform our grief and fear into connection and action, please join members of Carolina Jews for Justice for a community workshop on the roots of White Nationalism and how it relates to antisemitism and white supremacy.
***Heavy snacks will be provided. Parking is free at the State Employee Credit Union on Sundays***
This free workshop, offered after the Tree of Life Yahrzeit Memorial Service (2-3pm) and kosher oneg (3-3:30pm), will explore the relationship between antisemitism, white supremacy, and white nationalism. Participants will learn more about the antisemitism that fueled the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh and how we can collectively transform our grief into action. Please register here!
This workshop is geared towards a mature, Jewish audience and will be held downstairs in Unger Hall.

At a moment when the rights of immigrants are being attacked, a fuller story needs to be told to address the harms perpetuated by immigration enforcement practices and policies that extend beyond the crisis at the border. Whether it’s through raids, people being picked up at courthouses, or being forced to live in churches — families are being separated and attacked across America.
You’re invited to Stories Beyond Borders, five short films that show a more complete picture of the attacks on immigrant families and communities. Beyond building empathy, these films lift up real stories of resilience and strength, while illustrating some of the ways people can give their time, energy, and resources to support organizing led by immigrant communities.
Please join us for this free screening & discussion to learn more and find out what you can do to stand up against these attacks. (Tickets for this free event can be reserved on Eventbrite.)
