Taste II, Another Bite: Jewish in America
Rabbi Samuel M. Cohon
This three-part class will help those who have a modest knowledge of Jewish life to better understand Judaism as practiced in America. This is a broad-based presentation of three major themes in American Judaism, a fun, upbeat but intelligent approach to getting a better handle on just what today’s version of our ancient religion is all about. Taught in the same energetic, interactive style as the hugely popular Taste of Judaism series, the classes include “Jews in America – Movements, Assimilation & Creativity,” “From Davening to Rock: A Jewish Way to Pray,” and “American-Israeli Relations.” Includes delicious “tastes” of traditional Jewish foods.
Registration Fee: $25 for members and non-members (includes snacks and two CDs of Jewish music)
Thursdays, 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm, September 29; October 6, 13
