Jews in America: Insiders and Outsiders with Rabbi Yehoshua Ben Avraham

January 27 2022, 9:30 am - 11:00 am

NSS Beth El is proud to partner with Moriah Congregation to offer this course from the Florence Melton School of Jewish Learning. Our version of a Jewish-American “Stuff You Missed in History Class”! In 10 engaging sessions, learners will discuss seminal developments in American life, such as Jewish contributions to American cultural, American literature, and the Civil Rights Movement, through the lens of Jews straddling their status as both insiders and outsiders. The course will also examine antisemitism and the Holocaust, and the changing place of Zionism in the shaping of Jewish American identity. Sharing tales from immigrants, their children, and grandchildren, learners will debate the meaning of this ongoing saga. Cost: $295 for the class; $200 rebate available to NSS Beth El members.

Register for all Melton classes here.    Questions?  Contact Marice Eskin at meskin@nssbethel.org or call 847-926-7903.
