Building your Family’s Diverse Library
A Diverse and Inclusive Book Fair
Join rabbis, teachers and authors to hear stories and buy books for your home and our classrooms that reflect the real diversity of today’s Jewish world. Talk about how to be an ally by reading books about experiences that are different than your family’s, and find books that feature families just like yours.
PLEASE NOTE: Rabbi Weiss is recovering from a minor health issue and will not be able to teach tonight's class. The second installment of the class will be moved to next week and the series will be extended by one week. The next class dates will be 1/31, 2/7 and 2/14.
