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?
