The murders of George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor has elevated the challenge of systemic racism within this country and raised critical topics for our children/students. In our effort to support educators, we share this collection of resources with the recommendation that they be viewed through three intersecting but distinct lenses that we believe can help frame our learning and action.
- Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof: Education in Pursuit of Racial Justice
How does the Jewish tradition and community manifest and actualize its value of Tzedek, Justice, in relation to racism and related societal inequities?
- Diversity and Jewish Education
What is the diversity within our Jewish community and how do we improve/increase education about and the engagement of ALL individuals within our community?
- Engaging with Complexity in Jewish Education
How do we help our learners develop the skills to consider, engage with, and respond to complex topics and questions?
