Erev Shavuot: Thursday, May 28

7:00-7:30pm  Congregational L'Chaim
Bring your favorite beverage and/or an ice cream sundae in honor of Shavuot!

 7:30-9pm   Black-Jewish Relations and the Zionist Question: Division or Distraction?
Led by David Weinfeld, TBE member and VCU Professor of Judaic Studies
Much is made of the Six Day War in 1967 as a turning point in American Jewish history, including the controversial topic of Black-Jewish relations. In this talk, Professor Weinfeld looks at the changes, or lack thereof, in Black-Jewish relations before and after 1967, and asks whether the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is in fact relevant to understanding conflict and cooperation between these two communities today.
