CJJ-W Antisemitism Listening Project Circle 2-18-24
ABOUT THE CIRCLE: This is part of Carolina Jews for Justice’s statewide listening tour to understand how North Carolina’s Jewish community experiences, understands, and relates to antisemitism. The circle consists of a small-group experience in which participants share their stories with each other.
ABOUT THE ANTISEMITISM LISTENING PROJECT: The project aims to provide space for connection and healing, while also helping our communities locate their stake in the overall fight for justice and liberation for all people. Antisemitism (and the closely intertwined forces of racism and white nationalism) simply lands differently on Jewish communities in the South because of the relative isolation and diffuseness of Jewish communities here, as well as the significant influence of the surrounding Christian hegemonic culture. We are seeing antisemitism being used as fuel for the machinery of hatred and fear to divide progressive communities and therefore the urgency for these conversations is even more apparent.
For security reasons, we will send the address for the Circle closer to event date. It will be held in a central location, with parking, in Asheville.
If this Circle fills up, please contact Lisa Forehand to be added to a waitlist.
