Conversations: Father to Father; Exploring Race & Difficult Conversations within a Family

Wednesday, August 5, 2020 15 Av 5780

12:00 PM - 12:45 PMonline

Join us on Wednesdays at noon for Conversations, as Program Director Jason Plotkin sits down with a member of the congregation, community or from the sports world to discuss the current state of affairs. 

This week's special "Father to Father" edition of the show as Jason is joined by Mark Slessinger, the head men’s basketball coach at NCAA Division I University of New Orleans – who like Jason is the white father of a multiracial family. Jason and 'Coach Sless' will try to make sense of how they navigate issues of race and difficult conversations within their families, while exploring the ways in which the coach brings these same lessons in his basketball program.

Conversations will be available on Emanu El's streaming video page (select Proler Chapel) and Facebook.
