Suggested Donation: $10 

We will not have a program on Monday, May 25 due Memorial Day, however Friendship Circle has another wonderful opportunity in store for you later on that week.
Seniors and Seniors is an annual tradition where the JCC high school seniors provide dinner, the JCC Friendship Circle seniors make desserts, and everyone has a chance to share, learn, and deepen the ever unfolding understanding of LIFE. We could not bear to miss this enriching experience, so we've decided to offer it again this year... using Zoom!
In celebration of Shavuot, please join Friendship Circle and Chaverim teens, and help bridge the gap between generations. Share your wisdom! All are welcome.

At a time when America has major political and social problems it becomes important to look at previous times in history to learn methods of coping. American Jewish radicals have long been at the forefront of major social change efforts. Dr. Elaine Leeder will present on a few of the radicals who were active in the '40s through '60s. We will see that there is much to be learned from our foremothers and fathers. Leeder is the author of The Gentle General: Rose Pesotta, Anarchist and Labor Organizer (SUNY, 1992) and has interviewed many Jewish radicals during the course of her research; she has lively stories to tell of their adventures. Leeder is Dean Emerita of Social Sciences and Professor Emerita of Sociology at Sonoma State University.
