Facing Race with Michael Brown and Rev. Ron Bell (rescheduled from 2/12/17 snow cancellation)

Date/Time
Sunday, February 19, 2017, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

So how do we Jews today, most of us of European ancestry, face race? How do we face racial injustice and the continuing inequality that the Black community faces today? How do we deal with the privilege that we retain as white people? How is “modern racism” different from “old fashioned racism?” How is racism manifested in our social, political, economic and financial institutions?
