THE SILENT PATIENT
by Alex Michaelides
Community News
The recent murder of George Floyd has rocked America and served as a harsh reminder to us all: Racism in America is, tragically, alive and well. As a Jewish community, we cannot stand idly by. 
 
Please join Jewish Federation for a three-part series to launch this important conversation in our community. The first session will focus on:
 
Understanding Yesterday
Tuesday, June 16
8 - 9:15 p.m.

On Sunday, June 13, you will receive an email with a passcode to watch the moving and inspiring short documentary film I Shall Not Be Silent about the work of Rabbi Joachim Prinz of Temple B’nai Abraham in Newark. Please watch the film at your convenience by Tuesday evening and then join us via Zoom call for a discussion and Q&A led by a panel of diverse local rabbis about the Jewish imperative to stand up in the face of injustice.Rabbi Prinz was one of the great leaders of the civil rights era. His address at the 1963 March on Washington, “Silence,” remains one of the most remarkable pieces of American oratory. His years as a rabbi in Nazi Germany, always in mind, he remained steadfast and vocal in the name of equality for all Americans.Stay tuned for more information on the two additional seminars, focusing on Understanding Today and Moving Forward, in the coming weeks.
