Talking about American Jews

Rabbi Dr. David Fine of Temple Israel and Jewish Community Center in Ridgewood continues a six-session Sunday morning class on American Jewry.

Classes will be held on November 11 and 18, February 24, and March 3 and March 31, all at 10 a.m.

Highlights include Adele Rebell as scholar-in-residence on the Shabbat of March 1 and 2; a visit from Cantor Gerald Cohen, who will talk about American Jewish music; and a trip to Philadelphia on June 2 to see the National Museum of American Jewish History.

The main text for the course will be Jonathan Sarna’s “American Judaism.” A second edition will be printed in June. For information, call (201) 444-9320.
