Programs for Adults

About once a month, our school offers a two-hour program for adults during school hours.

These programs, which are open to parents, teens, community members, and guests, feature speakers, movies, and book discussions, principally on Jewish and social justice themes.

Past programs have included:

  • Stalin’s Forgotten Zion: Experiments with Yiddish Culture in Birobidzhan - A talk by Kolya Borodulin
  • Yiddish Art on Stage: Marc Chagall and the Moscow Yiddish Theater. A talk by Kolya Borodulin.
  • Stop-And-Frisk on Trial - A Conversation with David Ourlicht
  • Persons of Interest: Screening of Documentary film about U.S. government’s practice of detaining Muslims in the immediate aftermath of September 11.
  • Judaism in the Age of the Enlightenment, a lecture by journalist and scholar Milton Viorst
  • Lodz Ghetto: Inside a Community Under Siege a book talk and discussion led by CUNY Professor and author Robert Lapides,

Parents and community members are encouraged to lead programs on subjects of their choice and to offer ideas for speakers and topics.
