Wednesday, October 4 from 6:30-8:00pm (6:00 for students who have signed up for the dinner option) - Our next session will feature The Simpsons and Jewish Values w/Rabbi Eisner – (This will be the first of four sessions throughout the year.) For over a quarter century, the Simpsons have continued to hold up a comical mirror to the world around us. Back by popular demand, Rabbi Eisner will be your guide as you watch the Simpsons and discover the hidden Jewish values in each episode. What can we learn from Homer and family visiting Israel? Did you know that Crusty the Clown is Jewish? Learn about bringing Jewish values to life in a whole new way. Dinner will be Round Table pizza and fruit.

All parents and students should read this cell phone policy prior to our first night of programs. There is still room in the program so tell your friends to sign up! Dinner will be Round Table pizza and fruit.
