Navigating antisemitism, Islamophobia and fear of the unknown

On Sunday, Jan. 21, Or Emet will host a program led by Rabbi Lynn Liberman, a board-certified chaplain and community chaplain for Jewish Family Service of St. Paul, and Angela Cowan, a licensed clinical social worker and program manager for the counseling team at Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis.

The program will run from 10 a.m.-noon at the Talmud Torah of St. Paul, 768 Hamline Ave. South in St. Paul. A social time will follow.

Liberman and Cowan will lead an opportunity for attendees to process and think about these challenging times as we live through the Israel-Gaza War, rising antisemitism and Islamophobia, and the fear and anxiety of the unknown in 2024.

Those who cannot attend in person may join over Zoom. Please register in advance here.

The Sunday adult programs are free and open to the public and meet concurrently with the Jewish Cultural Sunday School.

Or Emet is a secular congregation celebrating and honoring Jewish culture, history and values from a humanistic, inclusive perspective.
