Racial Justice

The Racial Justice Committee is chaired by a coordinating committee: Jennifer Bruml, Kathy Gordon, Julia Lager-Mesulam, and Bob Brown. Please contact any of the co-chairs with questions or comments. Contact Bob Brown, who can add you to the Racial Justice Committee email list.

The committee's goals are to:

  • promote equity and inclusion in our congregation
  • educate ourselves and the broader Havurah community
  • disseminate information about anti-racist practice to other Havurah committees
  • partner with existing social and political organizations
  • identify opportunities for broadening Havurah's racial justice work, with a focus on criminal justice and policing

We ground our work in the Jewish spiritual values of: Kavod (honor, dignity), Teshuva (growth and positive change), Emet (truthfulness), Ometz Lev (courage), and Anavah (humility).
