The challenge starts on Monday, July 27 and continues (Monday –Friday) through August 24. You can start at any time because all the resources will remain available on the website.

The Challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. The challenge was created expressly for a Jewish audience and that issues of race, antisemitism and the relationship between the Black and Jewish community will be addressed. Participants will be prompted daily with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination.
