“My task is not to debate whether I’m a Jew or not, but to figure out what kind of Jew I am. For me, finding a secular Jewish community with progressive politics fits my version of that identity.”
Now registering for our fall 2012 course with Bob Forrant, Professor of Labor History, UMass Lowell, and returning adult education favorite. Read more about his course, US Labor Post WWII: From Reds Under the Bed to the War on Public Sector Workers. Register for the course here.
Our adult education programming is geared toward exploring the meaning of Jewish history, ritual, and thought from a secular perspective. Together, we grapple with questions of historical experience, values, and identity that challenge our thinking.
