Beginning in Elul, the month leading up to High Holidays, Jewish tradition teaches us to seek to repair harms we have done to others, by engaging in the process of teshuvah (“returning”). This year, as many of us are engaging in conversations about systemic racism, our Elul classes will provide an opportunity to consider this issue within a Jewish framework. Each class will focus on one of the traditional steps of teshuvah and provide an opportunity for participants to discuss how it helps us to understand and address racism in our society.
