Galit Lopatin Bordereau (BJ member) shares her impressions about a recent opportunity we had to support an AFJ member who lives upstate.
BJ Racial Justice Task Force Co-Chair
Martha Ackelsberg joined BJ in 2011 when she moved to NYC upon her retirement. She taught political science and women’s studies at Smith College in Northampton, MA. She co-chairs the BJ/SPSA Racial Justice Task Force, and, together with her partner, Judith Plaskow, has facilitated a number of havurot and study groups. In the 70s, she was one of a number of people excommunicated by a group of Orthodox rabbis in Baltimore for her participation in Breira, an organization calling for a two-state solution to the Palestine/Israel conflict.
