A JEWISH LENS FOR EQUITY AND INCLUSION: OUR EXPERIENCE AND CURIOSITY
Members of our team have 5-30 years of experience facilitating collective learning spaces, specifically on issues of racism and anti-Semitism. Having worked within dozens of Jewish and broader community organizations, we bring a strong knowledge of the Jewish community’s strengths and challenges in understanding racism and working for racial justice. We also bring a wealth of Jewish knowledge: textual, ritual, spiritual, and historical. We are individually and collectively passionate about supporting the Jewish community to be ever-stronger in fighting for racial equity and eliminating White supremacy in our country.
DIMENSIONS recognizes that our country is in a rapidly changing political climate and we are committed to exploring the specific needs of Jewish organizations and communities in this moment. As we consider the good work that we have done with JCRC’s, synagogues, federations and philanthropies across the country- we value the opportunities we have had to listen deeply to emerging needs and to allow the experiences we are hearing to inform and inspire our development of the most effective learning tools possible. We recognize that each agency, campus and community may have different entry points to the work of diversity, equity and inclusion. We look forward to working with leadership teams to create tiered learning opportunities, within large and small group sessions, that can address the most salient issues and circumstances. We look forward to facilitating partnerships, across common needs and entry points, that allow leaders and organizations to explore new possibilities for growth and learning.
