The sessions planned are:

Dr. Scott Kaar and Nicole Rainey will moderate.  

• June 14: Rabbi Noah Arnow will discuss “Halakah in the time of COVID: Remote Minyanim.” Learn how Jewish legal scholars thought about remote minyanim in the past and how that thinking has changed. 

• June 21: Dr. Rebecca Epstein-Levi discusses “Queering Jewish Continuity: Two Stories of Missing Fathers.” Jewish institutions often link parenthood with Jewish continuity and communal responsibility, but what about the other people who perform the work of caring, educating and shaping the next generation?


• June 28: Phyllis Hyken will discuss “Musical Memories of the Holocaust.” Learn about an Italian composer and musician who made it his mission to recover music written in concentration camps during the Holocaust.
