Gentiles Fighting Separation

At a Jews and Allies Workshop I learned that we white Gentiles need to “get in” with each other and risk discomfort in our sessions. We tend to manage our big feelings by being distant and isolated, something we can do because we are in a position of relative privilege in society. Many of us have devastating feelings of separation—from ourselves, our people, our humanity, and our earth. Being allies to Jews highlights this sense of separateness—a separateness that allows anti-Jewish oppression to operate. But we can reclaim our power and ensure that humanity triumphs.
