Hannie Schaft, a woman of uncommon courage, the “girl with the red hair,” was a university student when Nazi Germany occupied the neutral Netherlands in 1940. Over the next five years she risked everything — her education, her safety, her family, and her life — in order to shelter her Jewish friends and become one of the Most Wanted resistance fighters in the country. Join author Buzzy Jackson and interviewer Felix Pfeiffle to explore this little-known story.

MEMORY MATTERS WITH BARBARA KLAU

Monday, FEBRUARY 12, 10:00 am ET

FREE VIRTUAL (via Zoom); NO advanced registration needed


Afraid you are losing your "edge"? Pick up some fun, interactive, and challenging memory enhancement strategies that will help you feel more empowered and sharp. See how your own particular learning style affects the kinds of techniques that will work for you. At this brain gym, you will work out with a series of whole brain workout exercises, focusing on different aspects of memory. These exercises can help you to identify the strengths and weaknesses in the way your brain works. This course focuses on the age-old concepts of disciplined memory and memory retention techniques. Barbara Klau holds a Master’s Degree in Education and has worked with adults of all ages for more than 20 years. She developed an interest in memory retention techniques and has developed courses and workshops which she teaches in numerous venues in Connecticut and Florida, particularly to help those with normal age-associated memory issues.

THE GROSS FAMILY CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF ANTISEMITISM AND THE HOLOCAUST presents the following:

JERUSALEM AND THE DISPUTED TERRITORIES:

Definitive Sovereignty in International Law

Speaker: Dr. JACQUES P. GAUTHIER

Sunday, FEBRUARY 18, 11:00 am ET

FREE IN-PERSON; advance registration required

Florida Atlantic University (FAU Boca)

Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Friedberg Auditorium

777 Glades Road, Boca Raton 33431


The answers to the question of Israel’s entitlements in respect to the City of Jerusalem and the disputed territories under international law depend on certain prior legally binding decisions which are reflected in international legal instruments. Frequently, allegations of violations of international law against the State of Israel are based on political arguments devoid of legal merit. False narratives are accepted by many globally in the midst of rising antisemitism disguised as anti-Israel/Zionist initiatives. In order to counter the weaponization of international law against Israel, it is vital to increase the knowledge and understanding of the international law sources of the territorial sovereignty entitlements of Israel.

THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN':

Jewish Folk Singers of the '60's

with Cantor Jodi Sufrin and Cantor Roy Einhorn of MA

Wednesday, FEBRUARY 28, 1:00 pm ET

IN-PERSON $18 pp, Wine & Dessert Reception included

Mandel JCC, Boynton Beach,

8500 Jog Road, Boynton Beach, FL 33472


Join us for a Cantorial Concert about Jewish Folk Singers of the '60s with Cantor Jodi Sufrin, Cantor Emerita, Temple Beth Elohim, Wellesley, MA and Cantor Roy Einhorn, Cantor Emeritus, Temple Israel, Boston MA. From the immigration of great numbers of Jews in the 1890s through the turbulent 1960s, Jews contributed richly to the American canon, but rarely writing with any Jewish flavor. What inspired Bob Dylan? Phil Ochs? Paul Simon? Carole King? Is it possible that their passion for social justice is rooted in their Jewish values?

For more info, contact Lauren or call her at 561-712-5233.

LAKE WORTH BEACH STREET PAINTING FESTIVAL - 30th Anniversary

Saturday, FEBRUARY 24, 10 am to 9 pm ET

Sunday, FEBRUARY 25, 10 am to 7 pm ET

FREE IN-PERSON

Downtown Lake Worth Beach, along Lake and Lucerne Avenues and surrounding area

 

Over 600 artists use the pavement as canvas to transform downtown Lake Worth Beach into a temporary outdoor museum of original art and masterpiece reproductions. The tradition of street painting traced back to 16th century Italy when itinerant artists would use their chalks to transform pavement into a makeshift canvas, street painting has retained its appeal through the centuries. As in ages past, crowds gather to watch as fine works of art emerge. The “paintings” last only until the next rain, but the lively spirit and accessibility of the exhibition captivates audiences and inspires lasting memories. If you have never seen this or been there, THIS IS A MUST!
