March 19 at 7PM: Resilience and Hope in a Pandemic Year with speaker Amy Leos-Urbel
Over the past year, our country has faced a perfect storm of challenges: pandemic, economic collapse, and political turmoil - all against a backdrop of the climate crisis. For Jews in particular, we have been confronted, on a daily basis, with the 3 core elements of our historical oppression: blame, isolation, and terror; along with weaponizing of anti-semitism to divide and derail those who work for social justice. Fortunately, Jewish tradition contains tools for survival and resilience, guiding us in the direction of compassion, self-care, and connection. Together we will explore strategies for strengthening ourselves and our community, building alliances, and sustaining hope.
Amy Leos-Urbel leads classes and workshops on healing from the effects of anti-Semitism, racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression. Amy is co-author of the booklet "Anti-Semitism: Why Is It Everyone's Concern?" and the western MA team leader for the project Jews and Allies United to End Anti-Semitism. She is a long-time member of Congregation B'nai Israel in Northampton, where she is co-chair of the Tikkun Olam committee.
