Black Lives Matter – Do Jewish Black Lives Matter Too?

Black Lives Matter – Do Jewish Black Lives Matter Too? 

Guest Lecturer:  Dr. David Breakstone

7.30pm Monday 7 June

The Abayudaya of Uganda have been practicing a traditional Jewish lifestyle for more than a century, and its members have all undergone halachic conversions. In spite of this, those from the community who have asked to make aliyah have been rejected on the grounds that the State does not recognize them as being Jewish, though The Jewish Agency has officially recognized them as such. Dr. David Breakstone recently completed his tenure as deputy chairman of the Executive of the Jewish Agency for Israel and as a member of the executives of the World Zionist Organization, JNF, and Keren Hayesod.

He previously served as vice-chairman of the World Zionist Organization. Dr. Breakstone  made Aliyah from the United States in 1974 and has a doctorate from the Hebrew University in Contemporary Jewry and Israel education, has published widely on the teaching of Israel, Israel-Diaspora relations, Jewish identity and Zionism. He writes regularly for The Jerusalem Post and blogs for the Times of Israel, primarily addressing contemporary issues in Israeli society and Jewish life worldwide.

Join us for this talk by Dr. David Breakstone, who has been involved with the Abayudaya for years, who will offer us an intimate glimpse into the life of the community and its struggle for acceptance into the greater Jewish world.
