 Limmud Festival hosts many workshops and one of the most important this year was entitled: Black Lives Matter and the Jewish Demand for Justice. This session was led on September 5, 2016 by Amy Jaret and Adam Strater and it provided a space to talk about the BLM platform in order to make pathways toward true solidarity.

The BLM platform came out in support of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and against the treatment of Palestinians by the state of Israel, which alienated many American Jews. Adam and Amy sought to create a space to analyze why this platform is uncomfortable.
