Standing Together: Becoming Other-Wise

Where: Beth Shalom Synagogue (5827 N. Trenholm Rd • Columbia, SC)

We all experience it, that feeling of being an outsider, of being "them" in a world geared toward an "Us" mentality. Sometimes it stems from our own issues, but too often, it stems from issues related to our deepest identity: our religion, our ethnicity, our sexual orientation, our skin color, or our cultural heritage. We also have the experience of being "Us", and working to keep "Them" out. How do we begin to BRIDGE this divide in our own conscience and in our culture? Join us on May 2 and let's explore this together.


Justice for All - South Carolina is hosting Standing Together events to provide space for dialogue about the most important issues facing us today. Only by increasing our understanding of each other and of our neighbors can we break down the walls of suspiscion and begin weaving a fabric of justice for the healing of our state and our nation. Join us on May 2 at Beth Shalom Synagogue for an evening of honest dialogue about these burning issues.

We will begin promptly at 6:30. Please plan to arrive a little early to register.
