TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM
Harriet Hendel

It is often said that our criminal justice system is broken and flawed. How does it compare to other countries around the world? We will study approaches to criminal justice in several nations through films, a segment on “60 Minutes,” and scholarly research articles. Connecticut is now experimenting with a new program in two of its prisons in collaboration with the Vera Institute of Justice and John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Let’s compare other systems to ours and decide if we can benefit from inroads made by other Western nations. Bring your questions and comments to this interactive class.
Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
