At a time of heightened racial tensions and deep socio-political divisions, American Blacks and Jews are being threatened, harassed, and even murdered in alarming numbers. It is more important than ever for the Black and Jewish communities to build mutual support networks and form a united front to fight the perils around us. Unfortunately, however, Black-Jewish ties have not been tended to in recent decades, leading to an undeniable and undeniably worrisome erosion of relations.

Repairing those relations will take time, and the time to start is now! In this spirit, we invite you to join us for three cross-cultural and interracial programs at the Maine Jewish Museum. No academic jargon, no finger-pointing, no shaming — just a warm and welcoming coming together around art, food, fun, and good old-fashioned conversation. More than anything, this come-to-one-or-come-to-all programmatic series is designed to catalyze the moment and create better understanding and empathy among Mainers of all races and backgrounds.
