A distinguished panel comes together in sacred conversation about race and racism in our society, and our obligation to confront 1it, understand it, and ameliorate it.
Guided by a deep love of community and commitment to improve ourselves and our society, we as Jews and Christians, White and Black, are embarking on a series of sacred (for now virtual) conversations. Our traditions mandate us to engage deeply with difficult subjects. We invite listeners to join us with an open mind, an open heart, vulnerability and curiosity for an ongoing discussion about interfaith and interracial relations, racism, and what we, as Angelenos, are going to do about it.
The event featured a moderated conversation among our panelists, an opportunity for small-group conversations in breakout rooms, and uplifting music.
Welcome and Benediction: Rabbi Adam Kligfeld (Temple Beth Am), Pastor James Collins (Exousia Evangelical Outreach Ministries).
Panel Moderator: Rabbi Cantor Hillary Chorny (Temple Beth Am)
Panel: Pastor Ananias Rose Sr. (Hallelujah Gospel Service, Naval Support Activity), Rabbi Sarah Bassin (Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills), Elder Charles Blake II (West Los Angeles Church of God in Christ), Rabbi dr.

Rabbanit Sara Wolkenfeld leads a discussion on apologizing and asking for forgiveness, things which can allow us to move past old mistakes.
