Racism Within the Jewish Community (191 hits)

In a series of interviews and articles, Elisheva Ester Rishon describes her racial odyssey of growing up as a black American in a white Orthodox Jewish world in Brooklyn, New York. What Ms. Rishon shares is honest, candid, and at times disturbing. She is not attempting to be sensational nor does she make unfounded generalizations about a community that she still loves in many ways.

We have chosen to share her story with our readers because many of us can identify or at least empathize with some of her experiences. In fact, many of the things she confesses–particularly about periods of self-hatred, social isolation, and encounters with blatant racism—are things that many of us have heard and endured for generations.

After you have listened to her story, we invite our readers to share their own experiences in the comment section below.
