Parent Book Club & Discussion

Jumpspark Event Jumpspark Event
  • free
  • virtual 7:30-8:30pm

Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe, Director of 18Doors Atlanta, will lead us in a book study and discussion. Together we will explore race-conscious parenting, white privilege, racial injustice, and how to explicitly talk about racialized incidents with teens. We live in a society that is racially unjust and we are collectively and individually trying to step up to the moment.  We are all affected by how families are raising white children in a diverse nation. 

Join us as we read Raising White Kids: Bringing Up Children In A Racially Unjust America by Jennifer Harvey. This book study is for Jewish parents who are interested in exploring how to equip their teenage children to be active participants in a multiracial pluralistic society.

Meetings on Tuesday evenings 7:30-8:30pm EST via zoom

From a past Book Club participant: “Calling all white parents! Even if you don’t think you need to read Raising White Kids, you NEED to read Raising White Kids, and Rabbi Malka is the perfect guide to usher you through what can be an emotional, eye-opening, and sometimes devastating read. She doesn’t purport to be an expert on the topic, but rather a navigator who continues to grow and learn as she guides you through the book. Rabbi Malka creates a dynamic book group by bringing together a thoughtfully chosen group of people. I found myself looking forward to each bi-monthly session not only to discuss the book, but to catch up with my new friends, who by the end of the book club, had become lifetime accountability partners.”
