Jews and Socialism, Part 2: The U.S. Experience,” Sunday, December 4, 10:30 AM

Although the United States has never produced a socialist movement comparable to the mass movements of Europe, socialism has held an appeal, in greater or lesser measures, for Jews across time. This talk surveys the engagement of Jews with socialism (broadly understood) from the 19th century to the present. Dr. Tony Michels will discuss these and other issues.

Join the Baltimore Jewish Cultural Chavurah and other congregations and organizations in the Baltimore area for our 6th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. event of a movie screening, panel, and talkback on Sunday, January 15 at 1:00PM. The event will be held at Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, 7401 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore 21208.

 

This year's event will feature the film "On These Grounds," an award-winning documentary that explores the school-to-prison pipeline by focusing on an explosive video of a white school resource officer in South Carolina throwing a Black teenager from her school desk. The movie explores what role race played in the incident, examining the disparate media coverage of the incident and the origins of criminalizing children's behavior in school. Our panel discussion will include speakers from the Office of the Public Defender, Baltimore Algebra Project, and Youth as Resources. 

 

The event is free and light refreshments will be served. Click here to register:
