Event description

Description

Join ACCESS NY, AJC's young professionals division for those in their 20's and 30's, for our "Navigating Black-Jewish Identities" event, which will include a screening of Little White Lie and a post-film discussion at JCC Harlem.

In Little White Lie, Lacey Schwartz pieces together her family history and the story of her dual identity as a Jew of color using home videos, archival footage, interviews, and episodes from her own life. Little White Lie is a personal documentary about the legacy of family secrets, denial, and the power of telling the truth.

After the screening, a post-film discussion featuring Be’chol Lashon’s Lindsey Newman and Hazon’s Rabbi Isaiah Rothstein, moderated by ACCESS Global co-chair Nathaniel Goldman, will give participants the opportunity to dive into the issues of inclusion for Jews of color within Jewish spaces.

This event is free for our ACCESS Marshall Society and National Leadership Council members (annual contribution of $625 and above). If you are interested in learning more about ACCESS NY or joining our Marshall Society, please contact Brandon Pinsker by email at pinskerb@ajc.org or by phone at 212-891-1320.
