The rising wave of hatred towards “the other” in the United States has many targets. Immigrants, people of color, Muslims, the poor, LGBTQ+ people, and people with disabilities… It also targets our Jewish friends, neighbors and congregation members. “Jewishness” as “other” has been the experience of many generations of our fellow citizens, and anti-Semitism has long been bound up with social constructions of race and racialized oppression. To challenge white supremacy culture as we Unitarian Universalists have promised, we need to understand its basis in and connection to anti-Semitism.
Special music today from the UUCW Adult Choir.
