Racial Justice at Central: “Let’s Talk About Race”

If Jewish history has taught us anything, it is that despair does not have the last word. We invite you to learn, reflect, and act with us. Together, as a Central community, we will explore questions of identity, race, and violence. We will work to make New York a more just and equitable state. And, perhaps most importantly, we will listen to and share with one another. 

To learn more, check out our Racial Justice resource guides for recommended reads, podcasts, documentaries, and more.
