What you will learn:

Rabbi Lezak will empower your team to have courageous and deeply real conversations about race, class and justice in your company and in your town. Surfacing these conversations (often painful, often inspiring) invites us to take the needed first step to imagining what a path of hope and healing might look like in the American justice landscape. Doing so enables us to see ourselves as potent, powerful and righteous actors on a living justice stage.

About the instructor:

Michael Lezak is the Rabbi at GLIDE in San Francisco, a radically inclusive, just and loving community mobilized to alleviate suffering and break the cycles of poverty and marginalization. He works in GLIDE’S Center for Social Justice, aiming to magnify the impact of GLIDE’s justice machinery and to forge covenantal bonds between GLIDE and communities throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Rabbi Lezak brings 100+ civic, tech and health care leaders on Glide’s annual Alabama Justice Pilgrimage. He’s guiding UCSF with Truth, Justice and Reconciliation work, helping to connect the dots between the birth story of slavery in Alabama and racial inequities in healthcare in San Francisco. Rabbi Lezak spearheads groundbreaking work with law enforcement and district attorneys from around the country to help them understand the challenges faced by people living in extreme poverty. In his previous position as congregational rabbi in Marin County, he founded programs to love and support families and inmates at Pelican Bay, San Quentin, and Vacaville State Prisons. Rabbi Lezak is on the national board of T’ruah: The Rabbinic Call for Human Rights. He is married to Rabbi Noa Kushner and is the proud father of three daughters.
