On the Shabbat of Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, please come to a joint Kol Ami -Shirat HaNefesh service led by Rabbi Gilah, with guest speaker Dr. Marc Dollinger, who teaches at San Francisco State University. Dr. Dollinger is author of the book Black Power, Jewish Politics, and his topic will be “1619, 1654, 2020: Jews and Racism.” Dr. Dollinger will walk us through primary sources in American history to get to the heart of American Jewish support, complicity, and benefit from institutional racism. Not for the faint of heart, Dr. Dollinger’s material will ask us to look honestly and unflinchingly at our past, present, and future.
