Welcome to the 4th week of The Challenge!

Our 18-Week Challenge gives us an opportunity to read articles, listen to podcasts, and view videos dealing with the roots of racial injustice, the systemic racist policies in our institutions, and our own misconceptions of racism. The Challenge creates a dedicated time and space for us to reflect on our own personal experiences, biases, and assumptions. Each week you will be sent a new prompt to explore.

If you have just decided to join the Challenge or if you want to revisit previous week’s materials, you can find them on our website: https://ncjwcns.org/actions/antiracism/

Week 4: September 11, 2020

Does being Jewish actually make us better allies to the Black community? Is it helpful or relevant to bring up the struggles of the Jewish people at this time of racial unrest in America? Hana LaRock, a freelance content writer and strategist, offers her unique perspective on this issue in her article, Stop Comparing Anti-Semitisim and Racism in America, posted on Alma - a Jewish culture site.
