As I mentioned at the end of my Yom Kippur sermon last Wednesday, I hope that our upcoming Sukkot program next week can be a first step in our exploration of what it means to be a decolonizing Jewish community. As Sukkot coincides this year with Indigenous People’s Day, Tzedek Chicago is partnering with Chi-Nations Youth Council for a Sukkot meal and celebration at the Chi-Nations garden and wigwam.
For this program, we’re also partnering with Aurora Levins Morales as part of our participation in her Rimonim liturgy project – a newly created network of Jewish congregations and communities committed to the development of new liturgies that reflect decolonized, diasporic, justice-based values.
See below for more information. We hope to see you there!
