Rabbi Returns With Thoughts On Racism

Resolutions Northwest

The recent murders of two men defending people from racial harassment in Portland made us think instantly of Rabbi Debra Kolodny at Resolutions Northwest

She teaches workshops on defusing such situations, and lives in the Portland area. 

We talked to Kolodny not long ago, before she taught one of her workshops in the Rogue Valley. 

She returns with her thoughts on the double murder (and wounding of a third man), and her advice on how any of us might approach such a situation.
