During the afternoon of Yom Kippur the Social Justice Committee led an interactive discussion and learning workshop on “Identity, Oppression and Racism — Starting the Conversation”. Over 30 people participated on Zoom.
The session kicked off with a very informative and provocative presentation made by long-time SJC members, Lynne Raskin and Eve-Lynn Stein. They posed very interesting questions that were discussed in smaller breakout rooms and then brought back to the larger group. The intention being to start the conversation at the DJC and keep it going and evolving beyond discussion to meaningful action too.
