Home > Faith in Action > Antiracism Resources
It is not enough to say you are not a racist, you must fight against the institutional racism that exists throughout our society. We have collected a number of resources to help you in that fight.
Our members, clergy, and staff are committed to actively participating in creating change, both internally in our congregation and externally in the broader community, to pursue equity and justice to heal our fractured world.
Pray as if everything depends on God.
Act as if everything depends on you.
We are learning together, engaging with our families, friends and other members as well as with interfaith and community organizations, and acting to bring about the change we want to see in the world.
You will find a variety of topics including resources related to history, Black-Jewish relations, racism and approaches to antiracism, and intersectionality. We encourage you to use them in book group discussions, guided studies, and conversation starters at your Shabbat table and to introduce your young children, teens and young adults to the many cultures and traditions surrounding Jewish practices.
Resources will be updated periodically to keep the site dynamic and relevant. We welcome input from you. To add a book, article, or other information, please email Linda Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org
Starting January 23 at noon, monthly WHC series of free Brown Bag Zoom Lunches with a clergy-led discussion on antiracism and diversity.
WHC is engaging members in opportunities to explore how we meet the needs of a diverse congregation and offer an inclusive community for all. These resources discuss ways that the Union for Reform Judaism and other partners are creating inclusive practices.
For information or to hear about future JOC activities, please contact Joshua Maxey at email@example.com
You can build connections and help WHC create a culture of respect from the moment people enter our doors. If interested in being a greeter, please contact Laura Loeb at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are partnering with other Jewish and multifaith congregations and other organizations in our community to apply our shared values to address issues of inequity that are important to us.
