Upcoming Virtual Worship & Events

Seeing Human: Jews and Blacks Long Legacy of Partnership Event

Tonight, Tuesday, June 23 at 7:00 pm

Jewish Federation and Monmouth Reform Temple present a virtual conversation with distinguished religious leaders from both the Jewish and Black communities. Together we will look back at how we joined forces in the Civil Rights Movement and how our history together inspires today’s renewed commitment to support each other in calling out hate and “seeing human.”

We live in a world where the breadth of our knowledge often does not reach past our own horizons. If we expect to heal the breach that segregates our society, we need to listen and learn. We intend our conversations to open eyes and hearts, even where – especially where the conversation makes uncomfortable in expanding our horizons. We will look at the history of the 100 plus years of the Civil Rights Movement and the Jewish / Black relationship models we experienced. Join us to grow and share and grow. 

Panel Members:

Rabbi Marc Kline, Rabbi of Monmouth Reform Temple and Jewish Federation Chair of

Interfaith Initiatives

Rev. Ron Sparks, Pastor at Bethel AME Church in Freehold

Ms. Keshia Thomas, an African-American activist and a dedicated advocate for justice who came to prominence when, in 1996, at an anti-KKK protest, she ended up saving the life of a White Supremacist.

Pastor Semaj Vanzant Sr., Senior Pastor at Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park

Pastor Kerwin Webb, Associate Pastor of Youth and Young Adults at Second Baptist Church of Asbury Park, President of the Greater Red Bank branch of the NAACP

Rabbi Bryan Kinzbrunner, President of the Rabbinic Association in the Heart of New Jersey, Director of Religious and Spiritual Services, Wilf Campus for Senior Living
