Lifelong Learning begins its 2021-22 season with a Lunch and Learn course (without the lunch!), presented by Cantor Marina Shemesh.  The course is "Rachel and Leah -- in Words and Song".

This year is a milestone year for trail-blazing Israeli women poets -- it is the 90th yahrzeit of Rachel Bluwstein, and the 110th anniversary of Leah Goldberg's birth. In Hebrew, we use the same word for song and poem -- shir. In this course, we will read, discuss, and listen to Rachel's and Leah's poems in popular Hebrew songs. Knowledge of Hebrew is not necessary.

The four-session course will be held on Tuesdays, October 19, October 26, November 2, November 9, from noon to 1:30.

Due to Covid rules at the Temple, it will be a ZOOM presentation. There will be a fee for the four-session course: $20 for Temple Sinai members, $30 for non-members. You must pre-register at Temple Sinai, and pay in advance. You will receive sign on instructions after you have registered. REGISTER HERE

Rev. Vernon Williams of Fountain Baptist Church and Claudia Cohen, Ph.D. of the Unitarian Church in Summit who will
facilitate and guide our ZOOM book discussion of CASTE
 

In this brilliant book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Her writings link the caste systems of America, India, and Nazi Germany, examining caste systems across civilizations.
