How can the Jewish and Asian Pacific communities work together more closely to achieve our common goals?  In conjunction with Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month, join us for a discussion on AAPI and Jewish relations, and how we can foster stronger ties and join together to combat hate. Asian Pacific and Jewish leaders will discuss our histories of working together and how to best chart a path forward toward a better future.
