Third Shabbat Learning @ The J

  • JCC 2 Millstone Campus Drive St. Louis, MO, 63146 United States (map)

Join us for Third Shabbat learning in the Beit Midrash of The J's Arts & Education Building (upper level).

We’ll commemorate the Shabbat preceding Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a special Shabbat learning session focusing on Witnessing Whiteness.  The event is free and open to the public. Guest speakers will be Mary R. Ferguson, Racial Justice Director for the YWCA of Metro St. Louis, and Kenny Murdock, a social justice facilitator with the NAACP and ADL. They will lead a discussion on implicit bias and how it impacts our lives. Ferguson will also talk about how the YWCA’s 10-sesson Witnessing Whiteness program builds community, increases knowledge of white identity, and offers strategies for action while building participants’ racial equity lens for civil engagement.
