August Online History Course: Jewish Women You Thought You Knew (or Never Knew!)
Every other month, JWA presents virtual courses with scholars of Jewish women’s history, delving into the lives, challenges, choices, and innovations of Jewish women who changed our story. Each course is centered on a unique theme and consists of four to six Thursday evening sessions facilitated by guest experts. Register for an upcoming course to receive the Zoom link and access to session recordings. Sessions are designed to stand alone, so attend as many evenings as you’d like!

Racial Justice Learn In | Yom Iyyun
JWA is honored to co-sponser Base and Hillel International's Racial Justice Learn In, a day of deep learning and introspection for our community around racial justice as we enter the month of Elul. We are building a big, wide tent for this gathering, as we come together to confront white supremacy, learn from many JOC teachers, and hold up the diversity of our Jewish community. This day of learning will offer opportunities to engage over Zoom in a variety of educational workshops and gatherings. You are invited to participate in as many or as few sessions as you’d like. Please note that most sessions are open to everyone, though some have an attendance cap, or are designed for specific affinity groups.
Sunday, August 23
Zoom sessions will be offered between 12:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Quarantine(ish) Book Talks
We invite you to read something other than the news and to come together virtually to discuss books, writing, and telling Jewish stories. Join JWA's Book Club and JewishLIVE for talks with authors on Zoom. We hope to (virtually) see you there!
Stay tuned for information about our upcoming September QBT series!
QBT and history courses are made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in these programs do not necessarily represent those of NEH.
