  • You Are Invited

    Although this challenge was originally framed around the Jewish High Holy Days, we hope you'll find it to be a soul-stretching journey no matter when you begin or how long it takes you to complete.

     

    Over the month of Elul 5780/2020, Dimensions and the Jewish Emergent Network asked participants around the country to join us for 30 days of anti-racism reflection, discovery, action and transformation. And now you can take part in this challenge at your own pace, anytime that works for you.

     

    Based on Dimensions CEO Yavilah McCoy's powerful adaptation of the Al Chet/Confession liturgy of Yom Kippur, you are invited to engage in a daily regimen of readings, videos, podcasts and calls to action that will open your hearts and deepen your practice of dismantling racism. Across diverse entry points, our racial equity challenge will lovingly move you to re-engage your emotions, inspire your belief, expand your mindset and recover your connections to the infinite. Join our journey of Teshuva/Return as we courageously explore our individual and collective capacity for change at the intersections of race, power, privilege, supremacy and oppression in our lives.

     

    This journey offers four weeks of daily prompts, as well as welcome and final videos. Our Racial Equity Challenge includes two tracks, offering specific resources for both White Jews and Black, Indigenous, Sephardi/Mizrahi and broadly identified Jews of Color.

    Start a journal

    After reading and reflecting on each day’s resources and call to action, we hope you will spend 10 minutes journaling regarding your experience. What were your successes in engaging the day's call to action? Where did you encounter internal or external difficulties? What's one insight from your experience that you might use to inform/develop your ongoing anti-racist practice?

    Be accountable

    Once you decide to take the challenge, we invite you to invite an accountability partner who will join the journey and will meet with you weekly to process.

  • A Final Prayer from Yavilah McCoy

  • Neither the Jewish Emergent Network nor Dimensions are directly endorsing any of the artists, healers, diverse teachers of faith, or other content creators whose work is linked in this challenge. We are sharing the world of spirit equitably with many people as we endeavor to learn more about our need to work together across diverse faith communities to dismantle racism and white supremacy for us all.​
