In the summer of 2020, outraged by racial and social injustice in this country, young Jewish activists in NYC came together for 40 days of protest culminating with the holiday of Tisha B’Av, which marks several major disasters in Jewish history including the destruction of the second temple. This short film, 40 Days of Teshuvah, weaves together a story of bringing Jewish spiritual practice into the fight for racial justice. Following the screening, we’ll join together in a discussion with featured activist Yehudah Webster and community leader Rabbi David Jaffe around the themes and spiritual tools present in the film, and share ideas around how Jewish spiritual practices can be integrated into our own efforts for repair and justice.
The program will begin at 6:00pm with a welcome reception and pizza on our patio plaza followed by the film screening and discussion indoors. Please contact Olga if cost is an issue or for special accommodations.
All are welcome.
