Jews and Quakers Conference: On Privilege and Prejudice

25th May 2021 - 29th June 2021


Religious prejudice and privilege manifest in multiple ways in our society and our lives. Antisemitism is still common, and Quakers are not immune from it. Historically, some Quakers experienced brief periods of persecution, but most now experience the privileges of the majority Christian culture. Both Jewish and Quaker identities are intersectional, only one aspect of a person’s complete identity.

This conference will include speakers from a wide range of perspectives. There will also be a presentation from Friends with Jewish Connections about the experience of people who are both Quaker and Jewish. In an atmosphere of respectful listening we will explore challenging questions, so that a wide range of views can be heard and discussed.

Live sessions are every Tuesday 19:00-20:00 (UK time).

Information about keynote speakers will be available soon.
