CBH Forms Hate Incident Task Force

A task force is being formed at CBH to address issues of anti-semitism confronting the Jewish community in Davis.

In July 2017, Congregation Bet Haverim and the larger Jewish Community were confronted by hateful, anti-Semitic sermons delivered by Sheikh Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis. Bet Haverim partners varied greatly in their views regarding the appropriateness and completeness of the congregational leadership response to this event. CBH partners were invited to a facilitated gathering to share views and concerns. The Board of Directors offered a public statement and engaged in many individual conversations with concerned partners. Nearly a year later, our community is still grappling with the strong and diverse feelings that these sermons provoked.

For that reason the Board has formed a task force to conduct an internal review of our response to the Imam's words. The task force is also charged with creating, in collaboration with CBH partners and the interfaith community of leaders, an action plan for responding to hate speech in our community. As we move forward the Board is taking this opportunity to learn from this past event so we can be, as a community, better prepared to address such incidents in the future.
