Senior Learning SessionS
Senior learners are invited to “visit” Israel once a month and learn “Live From Jerusalem”. All you need is a computer projector/mic/camera and you’re ready to go!
Every month a presenter shares with the audience a “slice of life “from Israel that is both engaging and inspiring. Here is just a sampling of the sessions we have done over the last months:
April 2018: From truman to trump - American presidents and israel
The relationship between the US and Israel is undoubtedly a special one (coined by JFK). Yet, like in all relationships, there have been times of crisis and challenge. From the decision of Truman to recognize the State of Israel through the decision of Trump to recognize Jerusalem as capital, we will explore both the highs and lows of that have defined this partnership.
May 2018: Israel @ 70 - Behind the scenes
While the names of David Ben Gurion, Menachem Begin, and Binyamin Netanyahu are very familiar to us, there are of course lesser known heroes whose contributions form the core values of the State of Israel. In this session, we will meet some of these men and women who have impacted the history of, and helped to define the modern State of Israel.
June 2018: Food GLorious food
Food is an integral part of the culture of any community, and Israel certainly is no exception. Dietary laws and availability of produce have had a major impact on menus, and in many ways have defined the local cuisine. As of late, a much wider "food scene" has developed as immigrants bring their traditional recipes and modernity has increased the availability of ingredients.
Sorry-no samples will be distributed!
July 2018: Marc Chagall and tha famous chagall windows
This is my modest gift to the Jewish people who have always dreamt of biblical love, friendship and of peace among all peoples. This is my gift to that people which lived here thousands of years ago among the other Semitic people." - Marc Chagall, February 6, 1962
The light that emanates from the twelve stained glass windows bathes the Abbell Synagogue at the Hadassah University Medical Center in a special glow. The sun filters through the brilliant colors of the stained glass capturing their radiance. Even in the misty haze of a cloudy day, Chagall's genius transforms time and space.
