Anti-Racist Resources

About These Resources

JLV’s commitment to racial equity is evidenced in a number of ways: our Diversity Statement, developed by our staff; ongoing professional development for our staff; through multiple workshops facilitated for our Board and Trustees; and through jkid4all, an initiative of jkidphilly.

jkid4all brings together families who identify as Jewish Families of Color and/or culturally and ethnically diverse Jews through social gatherings and Jewish educational programming. These gatherings offer families the opportunity to build relationships with others who similarly identify, enabling people of all ages to see themselves in others while in Jewish spaces.

At least 12-15% of Jews in the United States identify as Jews of Color of African, Latinx, Asian or mixed-race descent (Source: Counting Inconsistencies) and ~10% of US Jews are of Mizrahi or Sephardic heritage. (Source: Be’chol Lashon referencing Beyond the Count study by JOCi)
