Fighting Racism and Seeking Justice: From the Jewish Federation of Ann Arbor

This has been a very difficult week for our country and many of us are seeking ways to learn more, stand up, and participate in creating a more just society. In this week’s Connection, we are honored to share some resources we have been reading and compiling in our efforts to educate ourselves and consider how to best get involved. Under the leadership of Decky Alexander, our newly developed JCRC is exploring avenues for connection and action with the Black community, and we will continue to inform you as opportunities become available.
