JCRB|AJC Executive Director Gavriela Geller will participate in a Zoom panel discussion on becoming an anti-racist Jewish community. The expert panel will explore how to identify implicit biases, recognize racism, and understand what it truly means to be an anti-racist and an ally to African American/Black communities, and equip participants with a critical starting point on how we can individually and collectively engage in the work of racial justice.

This event is proudly co-sponsored by Avodah Kansas City, Jewish Vocational Service and JCRB|AJC Kansas City.

While not without struggles, Jews have generally found life in America to be welcoming and hospitable. But when it comes to questions of race, where do we fit in? As a community that is majority white, do we benefit from White privilege or are we a persecuted minority?

Join us for a thought-provoking conversation, lead by Dan Margolies, health and legal affairs editor at KCUR, and best-selling author Joel Goldman.

Co-sponsored by JCRB|AJC, Congregation Beth Shalom, and Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City

Do you know an outstanding high school student who is interested in Jewish advocacy?

Leaders for Tomorrow (LFT) is an award-winning leadership development opportunity that trains young Jewish leaders to advocate on behalf of the Jewish people, Israel, and human rights around the world.

JCRB|AJC is currently accepting applications from outstanding rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors who are interested in Jewish advocacy for this year’s LFT program, beginning in Fall 2020. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however, we urge interested students to apply quickly, as the cohort is already half full.

JCRB|AJC joins Jewish communities across the nation in expressing our grief over the tragic death of George Floyd, who was murdered in broad daylight by police in Minneapolis. This death is yet another in a disturbingly long list of similar incidents and inexcusable injustices that have been perpetrated against African Americans across the United States. We stand in solidarity with the African American community, and call on people of all races, ethnic backgrounds and faiths to speak up now against the systemic racism that is a long-standing stain on our country, for which we all share responsibility.
