Temple Talks

Temple Talks is honored to hand the microphone to Rafi Forbush, founder of the Multiracial Jewish Association of Minnesota (mjamn.org), in conversation with a Temple Israel congregant with Chinese heritage. In the context of the horrors of the Atlanta-area spa shootings and the ongoing anti-Asian and anti-Pacific Islander racist incidents, they discuss the history and present reality of AAPI, and Asian American Jews in particular. We hope their discussion prompts our listeners to reconsider faulty assumptions about Jewish authenticity and to work towards a more inclusive Jewish community.
