AMERICAN POLITICS AND JEWS: Past, Present Future
Wed 10:00 AM- 11:30 AM
The JCC is pleased to announce a new class, just on the eve of the election! As the presidential campaign heats up, join Rabbi Ron Shapiro for a special series examining the relationships between the American Jewish community and the U.S. government. Some topics include: the attitudes of past American presidents towards the Jews; Christopher Columbus; Samuel Palasch ( the "Pirate Rabbi"); early American Jewish communities; and Jewish views during the Civil War. The last two sessions will be devoted to political issues vital to Jews today - as well as a closer look at the positions of this year's Presidential candidates.
