Future Tense: Jews, Judaism & Israel in the 21st Century with Jeanette Eichenwald
Discuss modern theological interpretations of Judaism’s original purpose as a partner with G-d and with those of other faiths in the never-ending struggle for freedom and social justice for all.

An Analysis of the 5 Greatest Controversies in Jewish History with Rabbi David Wilensky
“Two Jews, three opinions” goes the saying. As Jews we know all too well that those opinions sometimes burgeon, causing schisms, divisions and controversies that have shaped Jewish history and colored our contemporary Jewish society. This course, which will focus on the most contentious and divisive eras in Jewish history, is sure to catch your attention, as the passion of Jewish “family feuds” take center stage.
Cost is $100 per course. All classes will be held in the JCC Board Room.
Registration forms are available at the JFLV office and JCC reception desk, or register online at www.jewishlehighvalley.org ► Community Resources ► Yachad University.
