Holocaust Torah Scroll

Addressing Racism:  CSAIR's Next Steps

We hope to achieve greater sensitivity to and language for talking about racism but we also want to take concrete actions. We recognize that many Jews have parallel identities – one that benefits from white privilege (for those Jews who are white) and one that has a history of oppression, antisemitism. The internal work will focus on gaining a deeper understanding of this duality, both its benefits and its complications, and exploring how we can use our unique Jewish sensitivity to oppression to work against racism. We are on this journey together as a congregation. We hope to move forward thoughtfully, constructively, and with care. Whatever your knowledge base, background, or political affiliation, we are all learning together and we welcome you to join us.
