Hi Jews of Color Initiative! I am reaching about a qualitative study I’m running this year exploring Jewish cultural narratives related to collective safety, and how they have evolved over time for folks who do coalition-building and/or solidarity work. I am a white Ashkenazi Jew, and a second year counseling doctoral student at UCSB. A goal of mine is to bring psychology literature related to Jewish meaning making and cultural narrative (which has historically been “value neutral”), into a justice-oriented focus. In the past, research on similar themes has primarily centered white Jews and their experiences, and I hope to highlight perspectives in this study that are representative of the entire Jewish community. I would be honored to involve JoCI members in my exploration of these topics in a way that is meaningful for you. Let me know if you have any questions or would like to connect more! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in participating or have questions, you can fill out this form.
