The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents "Current Affairs." This course will offer opportunities for discussion as we explore current issues that influence our lives and society at large. Topics will be chosen by the moderator in consultation with the class and in view of the issue's relevance. Participation will be encouraged to express views and opinions in a supportive and informal atmosphere.
Steven J. Rubin, professor emeritus of international studies and former dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Adelphi University presents this on-going program. He has authored numerous books and articles and frequently lectures both here and abroad on such topics as international anti-Semitism, Jewish history, popular culture and literature.
This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
