The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires presents:
Knosh & Knowledge
The Jewish World of Elvis Presley

At first glance, notes author and presenter, Roselle Chartock, these words do not seem to go together. But, the truth is, Elvis Presley, a poor, fundamentalist Christian boy from the Deep South, an area known historically for its anti-Semitism, developed an affinity to Jews.

In her talk, Dr. Chartock will explain some of the reasons for this development as well as the nature of Presley's relationships with Jews, a little known aspect of the life of this rock n roll icon.

Program only is free. $11 includes lunch following program. Advanced reservations are required by Thursday, December 6 before noon by calling 413-442-4360, ext. 10 or
