The Jews of Color Initiative is thrilled to announce the premiere releasing the findings of our newest research study! Join us on August 12 from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m. PT/12 p.m. – 2 p.m. ET to learn about Beyond the Count: Perspectives and Lived Experiences of Jews of Color—the first-ever study of this scale on Jews of Color in the United States.

Earlier this year, more than 1,000 Jews of Color completed the “Count Me In” survey. Now, you can join the conversation to hear the findings and learn how we can develop, amplify, and sustain Jewish communities and leaders that reflect and represent all Jews.

Ilana Kaufman, Executive Director of the Jews of Color Initiative, will be joined by Ginna Green, Partner and Chief Strategy Officer at Uprise, Analucia Lopezrevoredo, Founder and Executive Director of Jewtina y Co., and Janu Mendel, Executive Director of Repair the World Miami, to share the key findings and discuss how we can leverage Beyond the Count to create change.

  • How do JoCs think about Jewish identity?
  • What have been the experiences of JoCs in Jewish communities?
  • How has systemic racism affected JoCs in Jewish spaces?
  • How can the Jewish community better reflect the range of experiences and identities of all Jews?

We’ll dive into these and other questions.
