At least 1,000,000 of the United States’ 7,200,000 Jews are People of Color. And that number is growing. As part of a racially diverse US citizenry, as part of socially progressive movements, and as part of this multiracial millennium, what does it mean, and what does it look like to be Jewish? We have had census takers since Exodus 30:11 that have helped to shape the narrative of who is part of the Jewish people and the needs our community must consider in caring for all of its people. Repair the World Baltimore is thrilled to welcome Ilana Kaufman to Baltimore for an evening of learning and provocative conversation about what it means to build communities that celebrate and welcome all of its members, and what is required to create gathering spaces in which all people feel safe and seen.

Ilana Kaufman is the Executive Director of the Jews of Color Field Building Initiative as well as a Senior Schusterman Fellow. Ilana’s work has been featured in the books “Black Power Jewish Politics,” and “Moral Resistance and Spiritual Authority.” Ilana has also published articles in The Times of Israel, The Forward, eJewishPhilanthropy and The Foundation Review. A nationally regarded thought leader on the importance of grappling at the intersection of Jewish communities, Jewish identity, and racial justice, Ilana has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered and Code Switch, and in the series “ELI Talks: Inspired Jewish Ideas.”
