Let’s talk! Join other teens from throughout Greater Boston as we welcome Billy Planer from Etgar36 who will be facilitating a series of important conversations.

Explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish and Black communities during the civil rights era. The Jewish narrative of that era is not completely seen the same by everyone or grounded in the reality of what was truly happening. We were participants in the civil rights movement, but it is not our story. Explore some historical events that impacted Jews in America, including Leo Frank and the temple bombing in Atlanta to the sociological and generational issues that shaped Jewish activism and participation, or lack of, on both sides of the movement. Also, how does all of this impact what is happening in the streets of America today?

Zoom links and additional information will be emailed prior to the event. Questions? Contact Jennie GoldfarbMe’ir Sherer or Brett Lubarsky.

This program is part of a series of opportunities for Jewish teens to connect around current events and topics, powered by Temple Isaiah of Lexington and Temple Emunah of Lexington, in partnership with Jewish Teen Initiative at CJP and supported through a CJP Teen Community Impact Grant.
