Start Here: Racial Justice Resources for Reform Jews

Books, films, podcasts, and more to delve into antiracism work

Want to be more actively antiracist but feel unsure where to start? To help guide those who are curious about antiracism and allyship on the right track, the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) has assembled a robust list of resources that provide an informative and engaging look into institutional racism, privilege, and the lived experiences of Jews of Color.

We invite you to review and reflect on these resources on your own and to share and discuss them within your congregations and communities. We also encourage you to use these resources as a starting point to generate thought-provoking discussions and to support you in the social justice and antiracism work that lies ahead.
