In response to the growing national conversation about racism and institutionalized inequality, Temple Jeremiah has created an antiracism resource guide and designed a schedule of antiracism programming for the coming year.

We invite you to attend our monthly antiracism programs and to join us in a temple-wide conversation about diversity, equality, and inclusion.

For questions, contact Dana Garbarski or Barb Miller.
