The Six-Day War: Narratives of Change (Israel at 70)
What has been the impact of the Six-Day War both historically and on the modern State of Israel? Hear four different TRS member perspectives:
• Gershon Feder will reflect on his experience as an Israeli Air Force Sergeant.
• Ori Nir will speak about the impact of the war from his 24-year experience as a journalist focusing on Mideast policy, and spokesman for Americans for Peace Now.
• Tammar Stein, author of the children’s book The Six-Day Hero, will reflect on her research and motivation for her book.
• Hadar Golan, TRS Shlicha, will speak about the impact of the war on later generations.


Talmud Unwrapped with Rabbi Amy Schwartzman
What makes the Talmud a timeless piece of wisdom and guidance? Explore the history, constructs and teachers of the Talmud as well as texts that speak to us. Each class will examine a technical aspect of Talmud and an engaging text.


The Jewish Presence in Early Jazz
Rob Bamberger - creator, producer, and host of WAMU’s vintage jazz show, Hot Jazz Saturday Night, which began airing in 1980.
Jazz became America’s “popular” music in the 1920s and 1930s. What role did Jews play in the emergence of “hot” jazz and swing? Did self-identification as a Jew play a discernible role? What affinities were there between Jewish and black jazz musicians? Presentations will explore these and other themes through biographical sketches, recordings, and repertoire of, among others, jazz musicians Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Slim Gaillard, Ted Lewis, Willie the Lion Smith, and entertainers such as Al Jolson.
