this is the experience of a Jew of Color this past Shabbat. How can we begin to get people to see how this kind of behavior is wrong? (Its happened to me as well.)

The point is that these kinds of interactions are all too common for JOC in Jewish space. Be great if those of us who are white Jews can take the burden of having to do all the educating off joc.

This is awful. Part of why we chose our Temple was because no one assumed when we showed up that my husband, a Black Jew, was not Jewish. Ironically to most assumptions I'm the convert.

Has happened to me many times. I’m hoping to find a shul where I can pray in peace, without stares. I’m not coming to discuss politics or make people feel good. I’m just trying to commune with G-d.

I wanted to do the show up for Shabbat but I was nervous to go since I am WOC.
