Intellectuals and spiritual leaders including Zora Neale Hurston, Abraham Joshua Heschel and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have noted the resonance between the struggle against Egyptian bondage and the struggle against American racism.

As such, racial injustice in the U.S. can and should be viewed as a 400-year midrash on the Book of Exodus. Join CBE’s spiritual leader, Rabbi Mike Rothbaum, as we look at source texts from the Bible to today, exploring the Torah’s call for justice that remains essential.

Class dates: 11/20, 11/27 and 12/11.

Free for congregants.
