Next Jewish Political Discussion Group- May 2nd

May 2, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Hi everyone -We had a great first discussion group in February. Our next political discussion group will be May 2nd, 7:30- 9pm, (use the Contact Us form for more details), Salt Lake City. The topic will be Jewish approaches to class, economics and privilege. We’ll send out the reading soon. I’ve included a little more info about the political discussion group below. Looking forward to the conversation!

-I’ve attached an excerpt of an article “The Rise of the Jewish Professional”

As part of CBY’s social justice/ social action work, we’ve starting holding informal ‘living room’ conversations to explore different political and social issues, and our relationship to them in CBY and the Reconstructionist movement.

The first discussion group looked at Jewish Reconstructionist approaches to race, racial identity and privilege, and we will explore other topics during future discussions. At our first meeting, we discussed this article: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2016/12/are-jews-white/509453/ (and this is a great follow-up article: https://www.theatlantic.com/notes/2016/12/jews-whiteness/509606/)
