Yom Kippur Breakout Info

We will have the following Zoom sessions:

12-1 PM Anti-Racism Project

Racism is an issue much in the news and on our minds these days following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and too many other People of Color in the United States. Author and scholar Ibram X. Kendi says “The claim of ‘not racist’ neutrality is a mask for

racism.” On Yom Kippur we recite the Ashamnu in the plural, reflecting on our collective guilt and misdeeds. As part of this sacred day we invite you to look at the individual and communal elements of racism in America

In the spirit of the holy days: reflecting / taking stock of the past and making commitments to the future, please join us for a conversation based on these ideas to examine and share your thoughts on what racism means and how a journey toward anti-racism might look. We will provide short excerpts from Kendi’s book “How To Be An Anti-Racist” to help spark our conversation.

Also if you are interested in CBH’s Anti-Racism Project, contact Andrea Savage at [email protected]

1 - 2 PM Meditation and Stretching
Tammy Resnikoff will lead you through a mid day seated stretch and reflective meditation to keep you in the holiday spirit.

1 - 2 PM: Discussion on Hineini led by Bruce Esrig

Hineini - How to make a moral argument

Respect is the root of civil relations; love is the flower. We will look for perspective in the writings of Hannah Arendt and the admonition of Justice Thurgood Marshall, both of whom say that now this is up to us.


2 - 3 PM  The ABCs of CBH
Come find out how CBH really works

How you can get involved – join a committee, suggest an event.

CBH is mostly a lay-run organization and we need your help, suggestions, and skills to make it better and stronger in the coming months and years.  So spend an hour with Katia and Leemor and come away with all sorts of ideas of things you can do to give back and be more engaged.
