How white supremacy rooted itself in mainstream Judaism

If you ask Jared Jackson, founder of the American organization Jews in All Hues, he’ll tell you white supremacy has seeped into mainstream North American Judaism. Jackson doesn’t use “white supremacy” to refer to swastikas and white hoods, but rather how Jewish spaces are often uncomfortable for Jews of colour, with so much of the community discourse being steered by white-skinned Ashkenazi people.

Jackson joins Rivkush, The CJN’s podcast about Jews of colour, to discuss these ideas and explain how his organization is helping to change how race plays into the question of Jewish identity.
