A Jewish Parent Engagement Group is forming in Albany. This group is open to any interested community members who identify as Jewish or are raising Jewish children. The purpose of this group is to create a group of self-identified Jewish families that would: (1) have a collective voice in the current efforts to address racism, anti-Semitism, sexism and any form of bias or hate in the Albany public schools (2) educate the community about Jewish history, culture, and religion (3) ally with other parent engagement and community groups to help create an affirming and safe environment for all students and families in Albany (4) provide mutual support within our group around Jewish identity and anti-Semitism (5) embrace all Jewish identities (e.g. secular, interfaith, Jews of color, LGBTQ, all levels of observance). The group is meeting on Sunday, June 4th from 8am-9:30am at the Cornell School Library. At this meeting, all participants will have a chance to help craft the mission and goals of the group.
