"Jews of Color" With Rabbi Angela Buchdahl

Tuesday, May 11, 2021 29 Iyar 5781

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

When the Torah first calls us a “People” coming out of Egypt, we are described as an erev rav, a “mixed multitude.” It’s time to refute the definition of Jews as a race – which has been used to justify antisemitism, violence, and even genocide – and adopt a definition of covenant as the foundation of Jewish peoplehood, one that embraces Jews of color and celebrates diversity and inclusion.

Rabbi Angela Buchdahl is Senior Rabbi of Central Synagogue in New York City. She is the first Asian-American cantor or rabbi to be ordained in North America. She will be joined by Bruce Phillips, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology & Jewish Communal Service at HUC/Los Angeles.

Immediately after HUC’s webinar with Rabbi Buchdahl, Rabbi Jaffe will lead a brief discussion for Isaiah members and friends.
