From #MeToo to #WeToo – Safety, Respect and Equity in the Jewish Community

10:00 am — 12:00 pm


The last several years brought forward astonishing revelations in the world and in our Jewish community, and has also started to give hope that the sexual harassment we’ve always known will be no more.

We are all struggling – personally and communally – with how to respond, what actions to take, and how to add our unique voice to this important conversation. In our community, we strive to make to create safe, respectful and equitable workplaces and communities that are free from gender abuse and harassment. It is our ethical responsibility and our moral imperative.

During this program, actors Ali Dachis, Shana Eisenberg, Ryan Levin and Freya Richman will share stories collected from the Jewish community, hear from a panel of experts on this topic as it relates to Jewish communal life, and discuss the work we need to do in this space.

Confirmed panelists include:

Sheila Katz, Keynote Speaker and Moderator, CEO, National Council of Jewish Women

Judy Halper, CEO, Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis

Libby Parker, Executive Director, TC Jewfolk

Rabbi Marcia A. Zimmerman, Alvin & June Perlman Senior Rabbinic Chair, Temple Israel
