Ethnic Studies in the Public Schools-- What It Means for the Jewish Community with Dr. Michael Harris

Wednesday, December 7, 2022 13 Kislev 5783

7:30 PM - 8:30 PMCBS Sanctuary

Over the past few years, there has been controversy in California over the development of Ethnic Studies courses for high schools; the initial draft of the California Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum not only excluded Jews, but included content which itself had antisemitic elements. While the finalized state ESMC was significantly improved, local school districts are not bound to it and can develop their own. Come to this meeting to learn about the process for curriculum development, and how the local Jewish community can act to ensure that our public schools are not teaching antisemitic content.



Dr. Michael Harris was one of the founders of San Francisco Voice for Israel, and now serves as a lay leader for StandWithUs in the Bay Area. He has spoken about Israel at synagogues, churches, political groups and senior citizen centers, as well as standing up for Israel against anti-Israel demonstrators on the streets of the Bay Area. He has appeared on radio and television news reports as a local spokesperson for StandWithUs and SF Voice for Israel. His book, ‘Winning a Debate with an Israel Hater’ was first published in October 2015 with a second edition in November 2018. After practicing pediatrics for 33 years in Marin County, he has now retired and moved to Sonoma County.
