Members of our Durham/Orange County Chapter are invited (and encouraged!) to join us for a kick off of our new Racial Justice Study Group! Together, we will explore a variety of articles, books, documentaries, and other resources to spark conversation, deepen our learning, and strengthen our integration of racial justice as a central component of all of our work. Please join us if you are looking for a supportive and affirming space to explore race through a Jewish lens. This space recognizes that we are all teachers and students; leadership and facilitation will be shared among all participants.
This effort is being coordinated by white Jewish folks who follow the leadership and work of Black organizers and educators. We welcome multi-racial participation, and respect that Black and non-Black People of Color may choose to engage at whatever level they choose.

How is Raleigh responding to the demand for accountability in policing? Does our tradition provide insight into the crisis we are confronting since the tragic killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and those whose names are not recorded?
The Progressive Kehilla of Beth Meyer and Carolina Jews for Justice invite you to a conversation with members of Raleigh PACT (Police Accountability Community Taskforce) a citizen’s group which has been addressing these issues in Raleigh since 2015, asking the city council for a more robust and serious oversight of policing. CJJ will respond, framing these concerns from a Jewish perspective. We will zoom in at 7:30 Thursday August 20, with ample time for questions and discussion.
