Choosing Justice: Bringing Tikkun Olam Home to our Communities is presented by the Boulder JCC, the JCC of the East Bay, the Siegel JCC of Wilmington, the Peninsula JCC of Foster City, the United Jewish Community of the Virginia Peninsula, and the JCC of Greater Kansas City.

 

A collaboration of JCC’s from coast to coast, invites you to share this dynamic four-part series on social justice with your JCC community members Sundays October 10 and 24 and November 9 and 14 at 6:30 pm EST. These engaging and impactful discussions on vital issues facing our society today. From race to religion, identity, and healing – helping us show up in our lives with even more skill and compassion.

Join for an exciting interactive speaker series moderated by Rabbi Dr. Tirzah Firestone in conversation with leaders at the forefront of racial justice, collective healing, and change-making in our communities. The series will provide us and our communities with creative opportunities for critical reflection on race, religion, and identity, and will generate authentic and meaningful conversation so that we can show up in the world with more sensitivity and compassion.
