Moving Inward: bringing liberation movements into the Jewish community

Enduring understandings: 
  • In the late 1960s, Jews took what they had learned from the Civil Rights Movement, and other liberation movements, and used these insights to change the Jewish community and continue to repair the world around them.
Essential questions: 
  • What values and insights did Jews take away from their work in the Civil Rights Movement?
  • How did they apply these values and insights to the Jewish community and other liberation movements?
  • What changes did they make within the Jewish community? What changes do you want to see made?
  • How can we draw upon past Jewish experience to help us with contemporary issues of social justice and civil rights?
