Screening of 40 Days of Teshuvah
In honor of the conclusion of Elul, The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore is proud to host an online screening of the short film, 40 Days of Teshuvah by the IOWA Project. It is a story of bringing Jewish spiritual practice into the fight for racial justice.

The film documents a racial justice action by Yehudah Webster and Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), where activists protested for 40 days culminating with Tisha B'Av 2020. This demonstration came to being after the brutal murder of George Floyd and the racial justice uprising. For 40 Days, organizers cried out to the heavens, blew the shofar, and mourned the destruction of black and brown bodies at the hands of the racist systems that exist today.
