Sanctuary Initiative Training Dec 11, 2017
On Kol Nidre, Rabbi Kleinbaum spoke about the history of Jewish persecution and demonization and immigration, and how today's efforts to demonize Muslims, Mexicans, and others are connected to our history. She called on each of us to "Be the reason people believe in the goodness of people."
