This is our debut panel with two Jewish women of color community activists in partnership with historic Sixth&I. The panelists share their personal experiences of racism in the community, explaining why black lives matter and how it relates to the Jewish community. This well-informed panel provides two different but powerful perspectives. This is informative for Jewish leadership and allies that want to gain insight on these issues.

For decades, Jews of Color have experienced the trauma of racism both outside and inside their Jewish communities. Change is long overdue. Hear the experiences of three individuals about what it is like to participate in Jewish life as Jews of Color. Afterwords, learn strategies and discuss how we can create a Jewish community that is open, loving, and anti-racist where each of us takes responsibility for our part in making it better. Co-presented with Mosaic Visions, Edlavitch DCJCC and the Manhattan Marlene Meyerson JCC
We discuss Chaya’s journey that led her to her Jewish faith, her survival with breast cancer and how her Rabbi and his wife at Temple Shalom helped her through her struggle with breast cancer with unwavering love and support. Chaya will also speak about her decision to make aliyah after her recovery. In times of racial and civil complexities and divide. This story highlights when the proper love and care is given to a congregant who also identifies as a Jewish woman of color and how beautiful is the outcome.

To examine this through a historical lense, Dee Sanae, founder of Mosaic Visions virtually talked with two Jewish allies that organized and rallied in the Civil rights movement with Martin Luther King, Jr.
