Virtual: How Do We Reconcile Wrongdoings in our Past? American Jews and the Civil War with Karen Raizen and Congregation Bonai Shalom

Date: April 7, 2020
Time: 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

How do we explain why Jews owned enslaved Africans, and that Jews supported and fought for the Confederacy? What does it mean when people in a community make choices that seem to be against that community’s values? What if those choices are not just unethical but possibly evil? In our own times, we have seen countless examples of segregation or persecution of minority populations, both in the United States and worldwide. Texts from different perspectives and time periods offer varying responses to these uncomfortable historical realities.
