ADULT EDUCATION

LUNCH AND LEARN

This month, we take a look at two examples of how contemporary Israeli writers used their fiction to grapple with the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. We will read excerpts from Assaf Gavron’s novel Hilltop and Dorit Rabinyan’s All the Rivers and discuss each author’s portrayal of the very human aspects of this intractable political issue and what we can learn from each author about the what it means to be Israeli, and Jewish, today.

Suggested donation is $8 per person. Lunch and Learn is usually held on the second Wednesday of each month. Open to all PJC members and the community at large. Bring your friends.

A MESSAGE FROM DAVID M. POLLOCK

Associate Executive Director & Director at JCRCNY, 

Public Policy and Jewish Security

 

I was in an office in Williamsburg when leaders of the Satmar community got word of the shooting in progress. Since then, we have been working closely with the Satmar community here in NYC. Eric Goldstein (CEO of UJA-Federation) attended the funeral of Moshe Deutsch זצ"ל Wednesday night.

 

The community established or identified ways that we could make contributions in memory of the victims. Please read these messages and urge others to contribute. Feel free to contact me should you have any questions. Thank you.
