This past Rosh Hashanah Rabbi Schwartzman delivered a sermon on the issue of race and invited the community to reflect on a Jewish response. A number of members of our congregation have gathered to discuss how the Temple might engage more deeply in this topic. The group is exploring how individuals might reflect on their own beliefs as well as considering how the Temple as a whole might respond. As a first step, we provide you with the following list of books that explore issues on race in America and the Jewish community. Next month we will share podcasts and in March we will host a two-part program on the challenge of law enforcement and race.
