Jews of Color Affinity Group


Started in 2021, the EDCJCC Jews of Color Affinity Group welcomes all Jews of Color and their family members for holiday celebrations and community building. Our vision is to create a space that’s not only safe and welcoming for non-white Jews but can feel like it is truly their own. Our community is interfaith, multiethnic, and multiracial.

The JOC Affinity Group was started in deep partnership with four Jews of Color who are leaders in the the DMV Jewish community—Sabrina Sojourner, Joshua Maxey, Toreno Herbert, and Dee Sanae—and we are so grateful to them for making this space into a thriving community.

If you’d like to join our email list or learn more please contact Sonya Weisburd.
