Lunch & Learn: Judaism Off the Beaten Path


How much do you know about Jewish life outside Europe? This year, join us for lunch and learning as we explore The Jews of Arab Lands: A History and Source Book by Norman Stillman, a wonderful blend of clear history and fascinating primary sources. Bring your own lunch and find out more about Sephardi and Mizrahi Jewish life, culture and history. There will be no quizzes or tests, so the reading is optional – but you might enjoy it!
