TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Maurice Finkelstein

This course offers an examination of current contentious political and social issues. Topics to be covered include: the 2016 presidential election; resurgent racial and ethnic conflicts; marriage equality, single and gay parenting; immigration (legal and illegal); Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA); gun violence and the second amendment; Supreme Court cases on personal rights; Israel, Palestine, and American Jewry. This is a discussion course. My goal is not to alter opinions but to have all of us become better informed and mindful of different points of view. Join us for what I hope will be a lively and engaging course.
Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
