Adult Education Series: Diversity and Inclusion, Ethics and Applications: A Conversation with Yishai Barth
The Adult Education Committee, chaired by Judith Heilizer, invites the community to conversations on Jewish perspectives concerning diversity and inclusion. The committee hopes that these conversations will help the congregation address deeper ethical issues that diversity and inclusivity pose.
