Please join us for the seventh annual  JTS Evening of Learning  co-sponsored by Kol Shalom Synagogue

with several local synagogues and communal organizations 

Last summer’s widespread demonstrations responding to police violence against people of color reminded us that there is much work to be done in our country toward creating a just society. Join JTS scholars to explore how Jewish texts and tradition enrich our understanding of and response to racial injustice.

Re-examining the classic writings of Abraham Joshua Heschel and bringing Jewish perspectives to contemporary debates surrounding reparations and reproductive justice, we will discover the wisdom Jewish sources offer for reflection on questions of race. We will also discuss how JTS has been addressing racial justice internally as a model for other institutions.

Scholars include:

The program will include opening remarks, two study sessions, and a closing session. Please check back for information on the detailed program schedule and session topics.
