Racial Justice Resources
Congregation Beth Chaim is committed to becoming an explicitly antiracist organization, treating every day as an opportunity to live our values on racial justice through reflection, education, and action.
Beth Chaim has convened a Racial Justice Task Force to coordinate its efforts to be an antiracist institution and foster deeper understanding around issues of race and racial equity. If you would like to join this group of congregants in working to promote racial justice, contact Rabbi Blum at for more details.
The Beth Chaim Racial Justice Task Force has compiled a living document of articles, videos, podcasts, and more to support your own learning, reflection, and action around racial justice.

Racial Justice Training Series
The Racial Justice Task Force of Congregation Beth Chaim invites you to participate in three racial justice trainings. Led by experienced trainer Megan Black from Faith in Action, a multifaith organizing network, we will deepen our understanding of race and racism in America and explore our relationship to these issues as members of the American Jewish community.
There is a registration fee for $18 per family for an individual session and $36 per family for 2 or more sessions. Eighteen percent of all registration fees will be donated to the Jews of Color Initiative.
