The Bible is such a central text for both Jews and for the African American Christian community that I have found that when we study it together it brings out the deepest passions, yearnings, dreams and concerns that have been embedded in our communities for hundreds – or even thousands – of years. Black Jewish Bible study solidifies our shared heritage, our shared struggles, and helps pave a way forward filled with hope and empathy for one another.
Rabbi Asher Lopatin
My experience with the Seattle Black-Jewish Bible Study Group has profoundly expanded my existing efforts, providing an opportunity to built authentic relationships that spur candid conversations about the issues of our times when just such a dialogue is needed most.
Rabbi Daniel Weiner
