Jews of Color Discuss Racial Bias and Privilege in Israel and the U.S.
Tuesday, October 24th
Farella, Braun, and Martel offices
235 Montgomery Street, 17th Floor
What does it mean to be a Jew today?
What does allyship mean?
How do we confront the intersection between racism and anti-Semitism?
Come hear Meytal Russo and Oraneet Shikmah Orevi speak about their personal experiences as both fierce activists and women of color in Israel and the US. Our conversation will be facilitated by our friend hadar cohen a Sephardi/Mizrachi Jewish woman.
Meytal Russo is a Human rights activist and lawyer, Mizrahi feminist, and new mom to Eleanor. Meytal interned at the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) and works mainly on immigration law, East Jerusalem issues and social rights. She is especially interested in shining a light on the Israeli Ministry of Interior and its unequal treatment of non-Jews. Keenly aware of being an immigrant herself, Meytal likes complicated debates about intersectionality.
