Welcoming Jews of Color

The Welcoming Synagogues List on the Jewish Multiracial Network offers a list of synagogues multiracial families and individual Jews of color have felt comfortable attending and are now recommending to others.

The list does not yet include synagogues outside the United States and in Israel. The project is actively looking for suggestions in both categories, as well as in the United States.

If you are a Jew of color or part of a multiracial family and you have found a particular synagogue or minyanim welcoming, please email the following information to jewminicana1 (at) gmail (dot) com

1. Synagogue name
2. Link to synagogue website
3. Synagogue location: city/state or city/country

Spread the word!

If you are not a Jew of color or part of a multiracial family but you know someone who might be interested in helping provide information for this list, please forward this post to them. Ideally, all synagogues will be welcoming to every Jew of every color!

Hat tip to blogger La Jewminicana, aka Aliza Hausman, a Dominican-American Latina and Orthodox Jewish convert, for bringing this to our attention.

About tolerantamerica

On her recent tour for her book, Cool Jew: The Ultimate Guide for Every Member of the Tribe, Lisa was inspired by the inauguration of Barack Obama, the first African-American elected president of the United States, to encourage cross-cultural dialogue about multiculturalism in America. To increase tolerance and understanding across communities, Lisa launched "A More Tolerant America" to feature guest bloggers, authors, activists, artists and other writers, who, like her, are multicultural. Klug's father is a German-Jewish Holocaust survivor from Poland and the descendant of a Spanish Jewish family that escaped the Spanish Inquisition. During her tour, Lisa encountered ignorance and bigotry toward Jewish Americans. As part of her campaign, this blog will giveaway books and other materials that promote cross-cultural dialogue.
