The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and so many others have brought the issue of systemic racism glaringly to the forefront of our collective conscience. Congregation Shaare Emeth is committed to partnering with other community organizations to call out white supremacy and work to end systemic racism. With the creation of REDI at Shaare Emeth (Shaare Emeth’s committee on Racial Equity, Inclusion and Diversity), we are also committed to furthering our individual and congregational anti-racist education and training, as well as working to make our congregation an inclusive home for all Jews and people of color. The committee has four goals:
Partnering with members of our Tzedek (Justice) Committee to advocate for racial equity on a variety of fronts across our city, state and nation.
