Earlier this month, the DC Dyke March became the second such event to ban the Jewish Pride flag. Are Jews becoming unwelcome in social justice spaces because of a perception for their support for Israel—or are "anti-Israel"/"anti-Zionist" beliefs providing cover for antisemitism? How can progressive Jews work effectively in their communities to stand up for their beliefs without being attacked for being Jewish or Zionist? This webinar brings together two progressive, Zionist activists who led the response to the DC Dyke March; a funder; and the President and CEO of Jewish Council of Public Affairs to discuss what happened and what steps funders might take in their own communities to support full inclusion for Jews and prevent such situations.

JPRO19: What Connects Us is the seminal conference for hundreds of Jewish communal professionals from across North America to connect and reimagine what thriving Jewish institutions will look like, who will lead them, and what impact they will collectively have on the world in the 21st Century. Join us August 12-14 in Detroit, a city with a rich history of innovation and reinvention, as the city becomes a learning lab for Jewish communal professionals. JPRO19 brings together professionals who are not ordinarily in relationship with one another – across generations, geography, organization types, roles, and much more – to deepen connections, make progress on issues that are at the forefront of our collective work, and strengthen their individual capacity to lead.
