Touro’s Race & Equity Collaborative is a group of engaged congregants who are committed to creating a more equitable New Orleans by continuously learning about and taking action to dismantle systems of advantage and oppression based on race. As a Jewish community, we are passionate about looking both inwardly as a congregation and outwardly to our larger world to address the harms perpetuated by racism. TREC is committed to centering the voices of those most affected by racism and seeks to create space for congregants of color and white congregants to work together.

We invite you to join us in self-reflection during these Ten Days of Repentance with a short set of questions and quotes about how race impacts our lives and our community. Handouts can be found in the foyer of the synagogue and are available HERE.
