Our American culture is wrestling with what reparations for African-Americans means, why it should or should not matter, and what to do if it does. But as Jews, what insights do Exodus and ancient rabbis shed about reparations? And what implications might they have for us today? Together in this 3-part interactive conversational workshop, which asks us to learn from our own family histories, we will explore the proposed need, nature, implications and reservations about reparations, then and now. We will also model how to have difficult conversations kindly and constructively. Note: if you’re angling for a fight, go to a gym. Here, we will explore, converse, share, and not argue.
