America is teetering on the brink. Can she be saved?

As we navigate the waters of this difficult time of confronting racism and injustice, join Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein and Reverend Jacques Andre DeGraff of Canaan Baptist Church in Harlem in conversation as they explore new ways of building bridges. Let’s come to together and speak honestly as we forge a path forward.

Both Rabbi Peter Rubinstein and Reverend Jacques Andre DeGraff are co-chairs of The New York State Office of the Attorney General’s Black and Jewish Clergy Roundtable, in partnership with the American Jewish Committee NY Office, which are comprised of Black ministers and Rabbi’s from across New York City, Long Island, and Westchester. It was created as a space for diverse clergy to come together, support one another and speak out against antisemitism, racism, and hate.

We invite you to send us questions prior to the program (by emailing Rick Rosenbluth) and during the Zoom webinar via the chat function.
