Kehilah: Navigating Civil Rights: The Journey Begins

Monday, January 15, 2024    
7:30 pm EST - 9:00 pm EST

[This Program is scheduled on Eastern Time Zone]

“We adopt the means of nonviolence because our end is a community at peace with itself. We will try to persuade with our words, but if our words fail, we will try to persuade with our acts.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.

Please join us on Monday, January 15th, on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, as we explore the history of the Civil Rights Movement taking place in the 1950s and 1960s. It was an organized effort by Black Americans to end racial discrimination and gain equal rights under the law. Many people of conscience, from all races and faiths, were a part of this movement, including the Jewish community.

This is the second program in a series that will examine in depth the Civil Rights movement. Each program is a standalone program which can be attended individually or as part of the series. At the end of the series Women’s League will sponsor the trip Voices of Change: A WLCJ Civil Rights Pilgrimage. ALL WLCJ members are invited to attend these programs, regardless of whether they intend to participate in the trip.
