Anti-Semitism Anti-Racism Anti-Zionism: A conversation about the current moment
Sunday, July 18 at 3:00pm
A collaboration between the leadership of Holy Blossom Temple’s Anti-Racism Group, Interfaith Committee and Israel Committee.
Moderated by Rabbi Lea Mühlstein, Chair of ARZENU, Co-Senior Rabbi, The Ark Synagogue, London
In Conversation With Emily Albert and Dr. Karen Mock
The recent conflicts within Israel and between Israel and Gaza have created tension in many households, even as tensions were running high on social media and in friend groups around Jewish identity and support of Israel. The rabbis received calls from parents, distressed over the care and concern of their children with the Palestinian people while Israel was under attack, and from adult children, who felt under attack trying to navigate anti-Racism, anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in their own worlds.
This series of interviews, with two amazing members of Holy Blossom Temple is designed to help paint a picture for the different generations within the temple of the world that each side sees on social media and in their friend groups – and to talk about the pressure they feel across the generational divide.
The hope is that other parents and adult children members of Holy Blossom Temple will hear their own voices in this conversation, and therefore know they have a place in our community conversation.
