Time to Shape Kadima's Future
Kadima Community Meeting
Saturday, June 4, 3:30 - 5 :30 pm
Kadima, 832 32nd Ave, Seattle (map)
As we look toward our future, we want to ensure that Kadima is a welcoming, accessible community that continues to grow for you and for others. At the June 4 meeting we need to make some important decisions that will determine our course. Your involvement and participation in the meeting is critical. Board members will provide a light nosh, and while our kids are welcome to participate in the meeting, child care also will be provided.
Kadima Reconstructionist Community builds vibrant, purposeful, learning community for Jews and our allies. Committed to racial, economic and gender justice, we bridge spirituality and social justice through Shabbat and holiday celebration, inter-generational learning, and solidarity work with #blacklivesmatter and movements to end the Israeli occupation.

Anti-Racism Chevre (ARC)
Thursday, June 16, 7 - 9:30 pm
For Location Information please RSVP
Join an inter-generational, relationship-based community rooted in "action-reflection-action" to cultivate and sustain Jewish anti-racism work and awareness in Kadima and the broader Seattle community.
What is anti-racism? The People's Institute for Survival and Beyond defines racism as "race prejudice + power = racism." It is a system that targets people of color as less-than giving them less and thinking of them as less-than. Anti-racism is therefore a direct challenge to that system, a way of life that commits to rejecting a system built on and for inequality. In other words, it is very Jewish!
