The Temple Israel Anti-Racism Task Force invites you to a book discussion, led by our Task Force leaders, Amy Mindell and Marci Markowitz with an introduction by Rabbi Jennifer Kaluzny.

We have selected “Dying to Be Competent,” as our excerpt essay for topic and discussion. This essay tackles the American health care system from a statistical and personal perspective and is the book's centerpiece.


Thick: And Other Essays, by Tressie McMillan Cottom, is a collection of essays "about how American culture treats black women". McMillan Cottom centers her personal experience as a Southern Black public intellectual and writes on topics such as the loss of a child, sexual abuse, body image, and beauty politics.
