Sunday morning Israeli speaker series!
This exciting monthly series is modeled after CNS's Sunday morning programs. We have solicited Israeli speakers to talk briefly about their life and studies in Israel and give an informal lecture in their area of expertise. We are fortunate to have lectures covering a variety of fields: law, social and environmental issues, literature, and performing arts.
The series will meet Sundays 10:15 - 11:45 starting on October 14, meeting the second Sunday of the month in 2012 and the first Sunday of the month in 2013.
