Be’chol Lashon (Hebrew for “in every language”) strengthens Jewish identity by raising awareness about the ethnic, racial and cultural diversity of Jewish identity and experience. Be’chol Lashon brings the historic Jewish commitment to civil rights and racial justice forward into the 21st century. Embracing the historical diversity of the Jewish people and, more importantly, the growing diversity of the community today is the most important step toward securing relevancy in an exciting American future.
20% of American Jews identify as Sephardi, Mizrahi, African-American, Asian, Latino, or Mixed-race. The recent Bay Area community study revealed that 25% of Bay Area Jewish household includes a person of color. Be’chol Lashon works with Jewish organizations to position them to be more welcoming and inclusive to the entire Jewish community. For more information, please visit GlobalJews.org
