Jews and Blacks in the Civil Rights Era and Now, Midrash and Fact

Monday, March 1, 2021

Entertainment: Free 
1:00 pm on Zoom
Join the United Hebrew, Shaare Emeth, Temple Israel and Temple Emanuel Seniors for a Zoom program with Billy Planer from Etgar 36. His presentation will explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish and Black communities during the Civil Rights era. Why were there Jews on both sides, and the sidelines, of the Civil Rights movement? What was the role of Judaism in the activism of young people in the 1960s? What are the implications for the streets of America today? After you register, you will be e-mailed the link to join the interactive program on your computer or other device or the number to dial if you would like to join by phone only.  You may also watch on this page if you don’t want to interact with people.
