JUST SAY KNOW! LISA F. BRILL INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH LEARNING
Know Judaism when you sign up for one of the Lisa F. Brill Institute for Jewish Learning continuing education classes. From sex in the Torah to how to parent/grandparent Jewishly, our class topics are as varied as our many location offerings. Please check out our new classes that have shorter time commitments for those of you with busy work/personal schedules. The Brill Institute is also proud to welcome back many of your favorite teachers. Our goal is to make it as convenient and interesting as possible for you to 'Know Judaism.' Powerful global forces are now at work that have critical implications for the Jewish people, Israel, and the role of the United States as a world leader and Israel's best (only?) friend. These unprecedented simultaneous, cataclysmic changes include:
(1) a shift of power and influence from the U.S. and Europe to the emerging powers in Asia (China, India, etc.) and Latin America (Brazil, etc.);
(2) globalization and the new information age;
(3) the conflict within the Muslim world between forces for progress and forces for destruction;
(4) new types of security challenges (e.g. cyber warfare, chemical weapons); and
(5) the rise of a new antisemitism and anti-Zionism. We will use Atlanta native, Ambassador Stuart Eizenstat's just-published book - The Future of the Jews - as the basic text for our own analysis and discussion of these forces.
Instructor: Dr. Steven Chervin
