Please join us on Sunday, January 10th at 12 noon Eastern time for a joint event hosted by the Wellesley Jewish Alumnae Association, Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent, and the Wellesley Racial Justice Initiative. We will watch and discuss BlackJewishUnity and Faith: Is the Spirit of King and Heschel Still Alive?
a webinar originally hosted by the AJC. This webinar was led by Rabbi Angela Buchdahl, Senior Rabbi at Central Synagogue in New York and Bishop Kenneth Ulmer, Senior Pastor at Faithful Central Bible Church.
President Johnson will give an introduction, and WJA President Leah Kaplan will moderate. Leading our discussion will be three Wellesley panelists:
Rabbi Rachel Isaacs ‘05, Dorothy “Bibby” Levine Alfond Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies and the Director of the Center for Small Town Jewish Life at Colby College and Rabbi at Beth Israel Congregation in Waterville, ME
Dorothy Jones-Davis ‘98, Executive Director and Cofounder, Nation of Makers and President of Wellesley Alumnae of African Descent (WAAD)
Tyree Oredein, Dr.PH ’98, owner of Left Turn Village, a Public Health and Social Justice Consultant & Training organization, and member of WRJI Leadership Collective
Please watch the lively webinar in advance of January 10th
as we will address how the webinar topics relate to our Wellesley community; particularly how religious values demand social commitment and how we, as Wellesley alums, might engage the difficult conversations about understanding the role we play in racism and anti-Semitism and how to combat it.
