Serving Whom? An Exploration of How Jewish Organizations Navigate Whiteness, Privilege and Service


The event will focus on the American Jewish community's changing position in the United States from a marginalized group that has not always been considered white, to its current position as a group with resources expansive enough to aid other minority and recent immigrant groups. The event will open with historical and cultural framing of Jewish experiences in the context of social service and activism by Frankel Institute fellow Jennifer Glaser. An interactive panel will follow, featuring representatives from local and national Jewish communal organizations speaking about their work in serving communities and individuals inside and outside of the Jewish community. Panel members and audience members will join in a discussion of the ways in which class, race and privilege influence the missions of Jewish communal organizations today.
