Hamsas from BeChol Lashon Art Projects

Be'chol Lashon (https://globaljews.org) has extensive resource collections, one of which is its Passport to Peoplehood (P2P) which explores the history and traditions of Jewish communities around the world in connection with Jewish values and texts. P2P promotes inclusion and diversity as hallmarks of Judaism and fosters cultural competency in an increasingly global world.

Once on their page you'll notice 7 categories of education resources. We are featuring their Art Projects as part of our Summer 2021 Racial Justice Newsletter. To see those resources, just click the Orange Art Projects tab. In order to access individual resources you'll need to complete a free registration which will hopefully keep you coming back for more.

(From their website)

Be’chol Lashon (Hebrew for “in every language”) strengthens Jewish identity by raising awareness about the ethnic, racial, and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. Be’chol Lashon brings the historic Jewish commitment to civil rights and racial justice forward into the 21st century. Embracing the historical diversity of the Jewish people and, more importantly, the growing diversity of the community today is the most important step toward securing relevancy in an exciting American future.

Be’chol Lashon was founded in 2000 as a response to a “Study of Racial & Ethnic Diversity of the American Jewish Community,” which found that 20% of America’s 6 million Jews or 1,200,000 are African American, Latino/Hispanic, Asian, mixed-race, Sephardic, and Mizrahi.
