Judaism & Current Events

Are you concerned with what’s going on around you day-to-day? Do you want to share your ideas with others? Join us for this weekly forum where you can share your thoughts and hear what others are thinking. We will bring Jewish values, history and perspective to each discussion. Upcoming topics will cover COVID-19, elections and voting issues, racism, how to effect change, and other topics affecting our daily lives. These 90-minute discussions will be led and moderated by Pati Allen Brickman and Marcy Hotz. Discussions are open to all CEEW members. Tuesdays from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
