Toward Anti-Racism — Selichot Sources

Back in summer of 2020, I was privileged to help Hill Havurah create some readings and prayers to help guide us through reflection around racial justice and teshuvah [repentance/return]: what more can we help transform through identifying, and seeking to make amends, alone and together, for, previously unrecognized errors of thought, word, and deed?

For 5782-83, a new video, enhanced by images licensed to Hill Havurah by DC-based photographer Joseph Young, was prepared to accompany this al chet/Confessional.

The selichot booklet was also slightly updated. It is available here, free of charge, to download. But please consider donating to Hill Havurah, which supported the video and booklet production, and/or to the racial justice organization of your choice.

Consider Harriet’s Wildest Dreams or DC Black Lives Matter.

Selichot Sources: Toward Anti-Racism prepared by Rachel Conway and Virginia Spatz, for Hill Havurah, with advising from Rachel Faulkner, National Jews of Color Organizer, Dimensions Educational Consulting.

Also, in preparation for the high holidays, some sources for the double Torah portion Nitzavim-Vayeilech (from 2020).
