Congregation Beth HaTephila

An Engaging, Inclusive, Reform Congregation in the Blue Ridge Mountains


Sunday, February 13, 2022 12 Adar I 5782

2:00 PM - 4:00 PMZOOM

Please join us on Sunday, February 13 at 2pm virtually for a discussion of Julius Rosenwald, his outlook on Tikkun Olam, the nearly 5000 rural schools for Black children he founded, and efforts to recognize our local Rosenwald schools. 

Our presentation will have 4 parts:

-       An overview of Julius Rosenwald’s life, collaboration with Booker T. Washington, and unique approach to funding his initiatives to assist Blacks;

-       Rosenwald Schools in North Carolina, with special emphasis on the schools in Asheville (Shiloh) and Brevard;

-       The Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School and the new Jewish Collaborative to support its efforts; and

-       Connecting the dots from closing the schools during integration and urban renewal, to reparations and our next steps to support racial understanding.

Using history, video clips, voices of former students, historical photos, and stories, we’ll explore Rosenwald’s influence on our area, with opportunities to chat and discuss. 

Sorry, Registration has ended.
