Black History Moments

Black History is American history and by failing to remember the good and the bad…future generations lose momentum.

Because I personally know and have worked with this amazing woman, I can vouch for how incredible her story is. Becoming the first Black rabbi in mainstream Judaism is no easy task. The education experience alone included studies in Jerusalem, learning the Hebrew language as well as enduring all of the personal challenges of merging Blackness, her Pentecostal roots and Judaism. Rabbi received hate mail, death threats, and endured much opposition against herself and her daughter but she persisted. Rabbi Stanton’s journey is truly incredible and inspiring. She was honored at the White House by President Barack Obama at his inaugural Jewish American Heritage month in 2010. She continues to spread hope and encouragement through her travels and rabbinic duties.
