Join educator, writer, and raconteur (not to mention Yiddish scholar) Dick Macht, PhD, for an in-person reading of autobiographical short stories that are filled with love, laughter, kindness, compassion, understanding, joy, sorrow, and happiness. These personal stories represent what it means to be fully alive.  'Moments To Remember' is about living and loving fully.

With a B.A. from Dartmouth College, an M.A. from Duke University, and a Ph.D. from Indiana University,
Macht has taught Israeli, Yiddish, and German Literature, as well as Jewish mysticism at the college level. Himself a director, Macht has also been an instructor of drama and acting at a number of academic venues. Macht has
lectured at synagogues, elder hostels, adult summer camps, and continuing education programs.
