Jews and Politics: An evening with Professor Jonathan Sarna
Tuesday, October 27, 8:00 pm
What role will Jews play in the upcoming election? Will it mark a change from previous national elections? What will be the impact of the current administration’s Israel policies on “the Jewish vote”? Please join Rabbi Perkins as he leads a discussion with Professor Sarna to address questions we may have about the role of Jews in the political process, particularly here in the United States and particularly now. Professor Sarna, the Braun Professor of American Jewish History and Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University, is the premier “go-to” scholar of American Jewry.

Di Yiddishe Amerike: Yiddish Music as a Reflection of the American Jewish Experience - with Cantor Gloth
Thursday, October 29, 7:45 pm
With the large Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe in the late 19th & early 20th centuries, Yiddish became a prominent feature of the American Jewish experience. Yiddish quickly made its way from the Lower East Side to Broadway, Hollywood, and into American pop culture. Come learn about the revival of interest in Yiddish music that is as reflective of the Jewish American experience today as it was a century ago. Click here to join us on Zoom.
