About the Event

40 Days of Teshuvah is a short film by filmmaker Hannah Roodman and The Inside Out Wisdom and Action Project (The IOWA Project). The film is about bringing Jewish spiritual practice into the fight for racial justice, and follows Jews for Racial & Economic Justice (JFREJ)'s 40 Days of Teshuva protest in the summer of 2020.

The film offers a powerful model for integrating Jewish spiritual tools and technologies like prayer, teshuva and Mussar into the work of social change in general and racial justice in particular. The protest featured in the film is an example of what organizing for racial justice can look like when deeply rooted in spirituality.

We will watch the 30-minute film, followed by a short discussion.

Tickets are sliding scale down to $0. Yesod will pass on ticket sales to Reparations Stakeholder Authority of Asheville, a local Black-led organization guided by a restorative justice approach to reparations.
