An African-American Rabbi's Personal Journey to Judaism

Exploring Diversity in American and Global Jewish Communities: An African-American Rabbi's Personal Journey to Judaism

Join the Northeastern University Jewish Studies Program for a talk by Rabbi Capers Funnye of Chicago's Beth Shalom B'nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation.

How did Michelle Obama's cousin come to be Jewish, and what was his path to the rabbinate? What can his story tell us about Jewish racial and ethnic identity in America and around the world?
