November 2, 2023 - November 14, 2023, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The URJ is offering a robust schedule of workshops centering around Racial Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion (REDI). They range from one hour to multi-part series and are open to all to sign up for as many as you would like. All workshops are free.
Below are the offerings for November:
Microaggression & Upstander Workshop- Thursday, November 2, 2023 @12:00-1:00 p.m.
This workshop will be interactive and focus on common microaggressions that community members from a wide range of marginalized backgrounds experience. During this workshop, we will learn how to identify a microaggression, common microaggressions in the Jewish community, and strategies to disrupt microaggressions caused by others, as well as those (inevitably) caused by ourselves. This workshop is open to all. Register here.
Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) 101- Tuesday, November 14, 2023 @8:00-9:30 p.m.
Please join us for Beyond Welcoming: Addressing Racism, Homophobia, Ableism, & More. Start building stronger communities and transform the ways in which you can create meaningful Jewish experiences for people of all backgrounds. This workshop is open to all. Register here.
Understanding the Impact of Whiteness & White Dominant Culture (3-Part Series), Tuesdays: November 14, 28, and December 5, 2023 @8:00-9:30 p.m.
Please join us for this 3-session series, where we will deepen our commitment and our capacity to leverage our positions as white antiracists in our effort to create multiracial multicultural communities where Jews of all backgrounds can experience belonging.
This workshop is for White Jewish/Jewish adjacent people (those of us who are not Jewish but are partnered with a Jew, part of a Jewish family, or interested in Judaism) who are looking to build their anti-racism skills and gain an understanding of whiteness and white dominant culture.
