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 rabbiblum@bethchaim.org for more details.

For a complete list of Racial Justice Events, check your Beth Chaim emails, as well as our Facebook and Instagram posts.

Resources

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.

World Map of Recipes 

One of the best ways to learn about other cultures is through their food. We started with African American recipes from the South. Then came African, Jewish, and other recipes from around the world. We have many types of foods (purple-vegan, green-vegetarian, red-meat/fish/fowl). To search for certain holiday recipes, click on the Magnifying Glass icon in the top right corner; select field Holiday “contains” type in the Holiday for which you want to search such as Purim; click search. Enjoy.
