Our winter read is Robin DiAngelo’s bestseller, “White Fragility”.
The group will be meeting bi-monthly at Beth Am, and discuss one chapter at a time.

Any and all perspectives are invited and encouraged to join the conversation, including those who disagree with the author! We like to keep things lively!

About: The IFO Book Club is a forum for Beth Am members who are interested in learning more about the realities of racism and challenging themselves through personal examination (t’shuva).
