Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner and Yolanda Savage-Narva issued the following statement on behalf of the Union for Reform Judaism, Central Conference of American Rabbis, and wider Reform Movement in response to Representative Cori Bush’s introduction of a resolution supporting reparations for Black Americans.
"We condemn the U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act. Despite its name, this bill provides no protections for transgender women and girls and instead prohibits them from participating on sports teams that align with their gender identity."
Please join us for Beyond Welcoming: Addressing Racism, Homophobia, Ableism, & More. Start building stronger communities and transform the ways in which you can create meaningful Jewish experiences for people of all backgrounds. This workshop is open to all.
This workshop will be interactive and focus on common microaggressions that community members from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds experience. During this workshop, we will learn how to identify a microaggression, common microaggressions in the Jewish community, and strategies to disrupt microaggressions caused by others, as well as those (inevitably) caused by ourselves. This workshop is open to all.
