Description

ANNUAL MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. SHABBAT
TEMPLE EMANUEL, KENSINGTON, MD
January 15, 2021 at 6:30 pm

Temple Emanuel’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Shabbat Service, held virtually this year, will feature guest speaker Yolanda Savage-Narva, the Union of Reform Judaism’s new Director of Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (REDI) programs. Ms. Savage-Narva’s topic will be: "Striving to Create Dr. King's Beloved Community:
Reform Judaism's Quest for Racial Equality, Diversity and Inclusion."

In her role as REDI Director, Ms. Savage-Narva is leading the URJ's efforts to address racial justice and equity in all its forms, as well as other kinds of oppression – looking to what we can do in our religious congregations, our local communities, as well as in the wider world. Before joining the URJ staff, Ms. Savage-Narva was Executive Director of Operation Understanding (oudc.org), a non-profit whose mission is to create a generation of young leaders to promote respect, understanding, and cooperation while fighting to eradicate racism, anti-Semitism, and all other forms of discrimination.
