Active Bystander Training

The Temple Emunah Refugee Action Committee invites all adults to participate in our Active Bystander (Upstander) Training on Sunday, January 13th, 1:00—3:15 PM at Temple Emunah. Our goal is to learn how we can step in safely and effectively when responding to individual acts of aggression, bullying, intolerance, and hate in public settings.

WHAT is the Context? The Temple Emunah Refugee Action Group has developed this training within a Jewish framework as part of our response to the current climate of intolerance and hate in our country that impacts so many, including Muslims, immigrants, refugees, Latinos, LGBTQ+ and people of color. With support from our rabbis and synagogue leadership, we have developed this curriculum with the help of Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and others. Please let Cathy Gildesgame know if you have questions or suggestions: This email address is being protected from spambots.
