WORKSHOP: How to be an Ally to Jewish Patrons and Students
The Association of Jewish Libraries & StoryTime Solidarity Present:
How to be an Ally to Jewish Patrons and Students
(Even in a Non-Jewish Neighborhood)
Sunday, March 20, 2022
1:00PM PT / 4:00PM ET
Two of your Shmooze admins, Heidi Rabinowitz and Susan Kusel, will be participating in a special workshop, and you are invited. As someone who cares about Jewish children's literature, please come and please invite your friends!
The FBI reports that 60% of all religious hate crimes target Jewish people despite the fact that only 2% of America’s population identifies as Jewish. As librarians and educators, how can we push back against this injustice? Join Storytime Solidarity and the Association of Jewish Libraries for a free workshop on standing in solidarity with the Jewish community. Get answers to the questions you didn’t know you wanted to ask, learn about Jewish diversity, and find out what actions you can take and what books you can buy to help the Jewish community—even if you have no Jewish patrons or students!
Presented by librarians Heidi Rabinowitz, Susan Kusel, Rebecca Levitan, and Sylvie Shaffer. Free and open to the public.
