High Holy Day Prep with Rabbi Shull: “Jews, Racism, Collective Guilt, and Al Cheyt.” 

The rabbi will lead a thoughtful discussion on what is called by some “white privilege and white guilt,” and the role that Jews, individually and collectively, might play in this phenomenon. Should we say, “Al Cheyt, for the sin we have committed by being part of the problem of endemic racism and not part of the solution?  Some young Jews argue publicly that we should. 

Please ready the following article from The Forward by two young Jews who are members of the group “If Not Now!” in anticipation of our session.
