What's Newish


What’s Newish?  Actually Quite A Lot!

Regardless what your level of familiarity with Jewish/Israel related issues, you’re sure to expand that knowledge and understanding by participating in a newly formed discussion group called “What’s Newish.”

This current-events discussion group will meet regularly at the JCC (or Zoom) to discuss and share ideas about Jewish and Israel related topics.  We’ll discuss subjects such as U.S. politics as it relates to Israel, Israeli-Palestinian prospects for peace, anti-Semitism and whatever else is newsworthy at the time.

Along with getting a preview of how subsequent sessions will be conducted, we’ll also gather your input as to what day, time and frequency of our meetings are most convenient for the most people.  We look forward to finding out “What’s Newish” together.

This program is moderated by Peter Hercky and Doron Steger.

From Pardes

Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people and the day’s Torah reading describes the Divine revelation of the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai. Our study guide includes nine short articles and three longer guided havruta pieces by our faculty. Like Pardes itself, these teachings allow the Torah to speak in ever new ways.
