Resources for Educators and Parents for Discussions of Race and Racism in the United States
American Jews have long believed that we have a role to play in pursuing racial justice in our nation. During the Civil Rights era in the U.S., Jewish leaders and community members stood with the Black community. But the work is far from done.
Right now it’s more important than ever to talk with our children about race and racism, even if it feels uncomfortable. To help educators, parents and grandparents, BJE has begun to assemble this collection of resources for ways to talk with children of all ages about this subject, as well as actions that parents, children and students can take to be allies for the Black community.
