A thriving progressive jewish community

BLACK HISTORY MONTH

As Kehillah North London, we welcome in Black History Month in the UK this year with Sukkot, our harvest festival, where we rejoice in temporary dwellings, which symbolise the fragility of the shelters we have dwelt in in the wilderness of our Diasporic history. This story of forced dispersion and exile is one that Black and Jewish peoples — and Black Jewish people — share in common. Black history is also an integral part of our British history; telling and knowing Black history is a celebration of our British identity. As a community, we rejoice in how integral the lives of Black Jews — and Black Britons, both Jewish and not — are to our collective Jewish and British stories. We are also conscious of the struggles and oppressions of Black history, and we recommit to interrogating and changing ourselves as a Jewish community: to centre and uplift Black Jews as essential to our multiracial Jewish story, and to show up in solidarity for the larger Black community in the UK and globally.
