S.F. library will feature lectures on Jewish diversity

Jews of color are coming to Judaism through a variety of paths, such as being a child of an interracial-Jewish couple, converting to Judaism upon marriage, adopting Judaism as religion of choice or being adopted by a Jewish couple.

The series will continue March 21. Rabbi Capers C. Funnye Jr. of Beth Shalom B'nai Zaken Ethiopian Hebrew Congregation in Chicago will address "The Experience of Black Jews in the United States." He currently is the only Black rabbi sitting on the Chicago Board of Rabbis.

The third lecturer to be announced will cover the subject of "The Asian Jewish Experience" May 2.

Each session begins at 12:30 p.m. in the library's Koret Auditorium in San Francisco's Civic Center. For information, call (415) 386-2604.
