Temple Sinai in Oakland will display dozens of large format, color portraits of Jews from seven of the world’s most isolated Jewish communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Scattered Among the Nations demonstrates the surprising racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the world Jewish community.
The opening reception, Sunday, September 18, 5 – 7 PM at Temple Sinai, will include a multi-media presentation by photographer Bryan Schwartz, an Oakland, Calif.-based civil rights attorney and a widely-published writer/photographer, who has photographed and documented the world’s most far-flung Jewish communities.
This evening is the kick-off for a year of programming at Temple Sinai on diversity in the Jewish community. Additional programs will look at the local Jews, Black, Asian and Hispanic, who live in the bay area. Panelists will share their personal experiences, whether born Jewish, adopted or converted, of life as a bay area Jew of color.
Sunday, Sept. 18, 5 – 7pm
Temple Sinai, 2808 Summit St., Oakland
