Sat Feb 16, 10:30 AM Shabbat Services with Rabbi Michael at Broadway United

The work week behind us, we now settle in to the quiet of Shabbat.  This weeks Oneg is hosted by Fran Zell.

Black History Month is an opportunity to have meaningful conversations 
about race and Judaism. We published a series of articles by congregants 
last year. At the next Shabbat service we will look at the Black Lives 
Matter charter from a Jewish perspective.

Here are some trivia questions:

What are the Jewish sources for BLM?

Which major Jewish leader (who wasn’t Black) married a Black woman? How 
did his family respond to the news?

Which Biblical text was used as a prooftext by proponents of slavery?

Who are the JOC (Jews of Color)?

How many Jews in the world  today are White and how many are not?
