Documentary: Little White Lie
What happens when you discover that your family has been hiding a Little White Lie? For Lacey Schwartz, a family secret led to a journey to redefine her identity. Little White Lie is Lacey Schwartz's personal tale of growing up in a white Jewish family, uncovering a secret about her biological black father, and coming to terms with her mixed black and Jewish heritage. Be'chol Lashon is proud to be the executive producer of Little White Lie and sees this movie as an important tool to talk about differences in an age where intersectional identities are becoming the norm. The documentary presents an opportunity to talk about what factors-race, religion, family-make us who we are? It manages to be both a particular family's story, but also raises larger questions for us all.


Workshop: Talking About Race
The demographics in America are changing. Over the next few decades, people of color will come to compose a majority of the country's population. In a world connected through social media and technology, knowing how to encounter each other is an increasingly important skill. How can we be better prepared? How can we be "culturally competent?" Be'chol Lashon presents a multicultural view of the Jewish people and works towards unpacking the politics of race in America, providing the skills, tools, and expertise to navigate different cultural spaces in a Jewish context. We explore Jewish identity, highlighting inclusion, diversity and connection as hallmarks of Judaism.
