Pursue is overjoyed to bring you Justice and Jewish Thought: Summer School!
What is Justice and Jewish Thought?
Justice and Jewish Thought is a city-wide study program comprised of multiple small groups meeting simultaneously across the city over the course of eight weeks. The groups engage with a challenging curriculum that explores how various oppressions – such as race, class, gender, sexual identity, and anti-Semitism – intersect with and affect our identities as Jews, our Jewish practices, and our social justice work. The course presents a unique opportunity to build community with a small group of committed people while sharpening your analysis related to social change.
This program is participant-led. There are no external experts or teachers. Participants take turns hosting in their homes and facilitating the group discussions. For most participants, this structure combined with the curriculum itself, are what make the program both unique and meaningful.
When and Where?
The program runs from the beginning of July until the end of August (for a total of eight weeks). The program is bookended by an opening and closing event for all participants (week of July 9th and August 27th, respectively). Groups will meet weekly, in the evenings, for their small group discussions. Everyone who registers will have an opportunity to identify the day of the week and the neighborhood that most suits their schedule. The opening and closing events will be at a centrally located venue (TBA). The small group discussions will take place in peoples’ homes, on a rotating basis.
