TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Alfred Jones

After France fell to the Nazi war machine in June 1940, Adolf Hitler turned his sights on the island nation across the Channel. Thus began the epic Battle of Britain. For many long months, the British people stood alone as the bombs fell, with only their courage and stamina to sustain them as they fought back. Tested as never before, it was indeed their finest hour and richly deserves to be revisited in this course, which will combine political, military, diplomatic, and above all social history.
Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
