The intersection of Judaism and race in America has always been complex, and Jews of all backgrounds have been active in both creating and resisting these designations. Join us for this four-session course exploring how Jewish women have experienced and understood some of these racial and ethnic groupings from the early 19th century through today.
Sessions are designed to stand alone, so attend as many evenings as you’d like! No advanced reading or preparation is required. Register to receive the Zoom link and access to session recordings.
