Jews, Race, and Religion

Racism is one of the most pressing ethical challenges of our time. This site provides resources for studying race and racism through the prism of Jewish experience. It accompanies a lecture series co-sponsored by the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies. Leading scholars in Jewish Studies, Critical Race Studies, and Religious Studies will share cutting-edge research that deepens the conversation about race, racism and anti-racism in contemporary society, both American and Jewish.

Scroll down to find introductory materials and resources on the eleven topics our lecturers explore.

The lecture series is free and open to the public. The lectures begin on January 28, 2021, and take place on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. EST. Recordings of the lectures will be posted on this site after they occur.
