Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow: A Virtual Presentation with Dominique Jean-Louis

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow: A Virtual Presentation with Dominique Jean-Louis

February 26th at 7:00PM

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow explores the struggle for full citizenship and racial equality that unfolded in the 50 years after the Civil War. When slavery ended in 1865, a period of Reconstruction began, leading to such achievements as the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments to the Constitution. By 1868, all persons born in the United States were citizens and equal under the law. But efforts to create an interracial democracy were contested from the start. A harsh backlash ensued, ushering in a half century of the “separate but equal” age of Jim Crow. You will receive a Zoom invitation via email approximately 1 hour before the program.

Speaker at Scarsdale Synagogue: Billy Planer on Jews and Blacks in the Civil Rights Era
Friday, March 5, 8:00 p.m.

To attend: Email Temple Administrator, Fawn Mendel at fawn@sstte.org if you are interested in receiving the zoom link.

Following the 7:30 p.m. Shir Shabbat service, join Scarsdale Synagogue's Brotherhood and Billy Planer to explore the reality of the relationship between the Jewish & Black communities during the Civil Rights era.

Billy Planer founded Etgar 36 in 2003 as a political and social justice summer program for Jewish teens and continues to lead students across America and engage them in difficult and uncomfortable conversations with multiple sides of social and political issues to develop their opinion and voice.

Billy has expanded his Etgar 360 tours in recent years to include adults and offers an opportunity for them to visit landmarks in Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma and Birmingham. We have rescheduled our congregation's 2020 trip to March 2022. Details to follow.

Discussion points:

-Why were there Jews on both sides, and the sidelines of the Civil Rights movement?
-What was the role of Judaism in the activism of young people in the 1960s?
-What are the implications for the streets of America today?

Library Book Club: Sharks in the Time of Saviors by Kawai Strong Washburn

Library Libations Book Club: Sharks in the Time of Saviors by Kawai Strong Washburn

March 9th at 7:00PM

Join Librarian Katie for an informal and lively discussion of Kawai Strong Washburn's Sharks in the Time of Saviors.

In 1995 Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on a rare family vacation, seven-year-old Nainoa Flores falls overboard a cruise ship into the Pacific Ocean. When a shiver of sharks appears in the water, everyone fears for the worst. But instead, Noa is gingerly delivered to his mother in the jaws of a shark, marking his story as the stuff of legends.

Nainoa's family, struggling amidst the collapse of the sugarcane industry, hails his rescue as a sign of favor from ancient Hawaiian gods - a belief that appears validated after he exhibits puzzling new abilities. But as time passes, this supposed divine favor begins to drive the family apart: Nainoa, working now as a paramedic on the streets of Portland, struggles to fathom the full measure of his expanding abilities; further north in Washington, his older brother Dean hurtles into the world of elite college athletics, obsessed with wealth and fame; while in California, risk-obsessed younger sister Kaui navigates an unforgiving academic workload in an attempt to forge her independence from the family's legacy.

When supernatural events revisit the Flores family in Hawaii - with tragic consequences - they are all forced to reckon with the bonds of family, the meaning of heritage, and the cost of survival.

To attend: Email Temple Administrator, Fawn Mendel at fawn@sstte.org if you are interested in receiving the zoom link.

Following the 6:15 p.m. service, Scarsdale Synagogue's Brotherhood presents Mark Gerson. Mark is beginning a national virtual tour ahead of the publication of his book on the Haggadah, The Telling: How Judaism's Essential Book Reveals the Meaning of Life — which will be published by St. Martin’s Essentials in March. It promises to be one of the most important Jewish books of the year. You might have already heard Mark's popular podcast, The Rabbi's Husband. The podcast is noted for having the world's most interesting people discuss their favorite Torah passage. Previous guests include Senators Cory Booker, Bill Cassidy, Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio, Congressmen Mike Gallagher, Josh Gottheimer and Max Rose, Ambassadors Michael Oren and Ron Dermer, Rabbis Matt Gewirtz, Jonah Pesner, Moshe Schneiner, and David Wolpe, Pastors Teo Hayashi, Rick Pino, Samuel Rodriguez and Robert Stearns, authors Yossi Klein Halevi, Sarah Hurwitz and Bret Stephens, Yale Law School Dean Heather Gerken, Yeshiva University President Ari Berman and Hebrew Union College President Andrew Rehfeld, Professor AJ Levine and Marc Brettler, NFL players Tiki Barber and Benjamin Watson and many others. Mark is the co-founder and Chairman of United Hatzalah, the crowd-sourced system of volunteer first responders that enables Israelis to be treated within the three minutes that separate life from death following a trauma. He is also the co-founder and Chairman of African Mission Healthcare, which supports the work of Christian missionary physicians in Africa. He can discuss the work of these organizations in his session as well. As a part of Scarsdale Synagogue's adult learning curriculum, Mark would be delighted to conduct a Zoom conversation about the lessons we learn from the Exodus story and at the Pesach Seder. This session will likely leave your members with a renewed appreciation of our treasure (the Torah), while enabling them to make their Pesach Seders what they should be: the most meaningful, important and interesting evening of the Jewish year.
