Virtual Weekly Seminar on Jewish Studies

The JCC on the Palisades is sponsoring a class by its Scholar-in-residence, Professor Reuven Kimelman of Brandeis University.
The subject is Pirkei Avot in its historical context.
The same class will take place at two times to allow for maximum participation. It is the same class so that if you miss one, you are welcome in the other.
Since it is right before Rosh Hashanah, the first class will be on the Rosh Hashanah liturgy.
