Rabbi Joey and Black Parent Initiative's Charles McGee

Friday, March 24, 2017 • 26 Adar 5777

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

On Friday, March 24, Havurah will host a short Shabbat service followed by a conversation between Rabbi Joey and Charles McGee, co-founder and president of Black Parent Initiative. This is the first of several events honoring Rabbi Joey as he leaves his decades-long role as Havurah Shalom's rabbi.

The short service will be followed by a conversation between Charles McGee and Rabbi Joey facilitated by Steve Goldberg, with a launching point being Michael Eric Dyson's book Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America. The conversation will explore the history that Jews and African Americans have in common and the possibilities for them to support each other. You can learn more about Charles McGee here in Street Roots

Please RSVP below if you can come! You can also use this to RSVP for other events planned for April 20-22 in honor of Rabbi Joey.
