OZ is bringing a workgroup together to participate in the ADL’s Kulanu: Synagogues In Action Against Antisemitism Program.
Kulanu, Hebrew for “all of us,” is an eight-month program, kicking off annually after the High Holidays, dedicated to empowering communities to address antisemitism and hate through education, engagement, and advocacy.
During the program, participants join a network of congregations to build bridges of understanding across communities. ADL will prepare us with resources to develop and implement engaging and impactful programming through its exclusive Kulanu initiative inspiration library, interactive webinars with ADL experts, and guidance from our professionals.
As a participating Kulanu community, we will learn how to have critical conversations about antisemitism and other forms of bigotry and cultivate the tools to fight them.
Kulanu communities commit to:
- Forming a working group that oversees Kulanu programming in your community in partnership with a professional or clergy liaison.
- Promoting reporting of antisemitic and bias incidents to ADL.
- Implementing two programs or initiatives, one of which engages an external audience beyond our synagogue community.
- Participating in Kulanu webinars.
- Engaging in a community of practice for at least two meetings.
- Sharing impact at the end of the program.
We are seeking a diverse group of workgroup participants. Our first meeting is October 16 at 7pm but recruitment is ongoing.
