>>Sink your teeth into this really old restaurant’s delicious steak

Interfaithfamily.com has a great cheat sheet on Jewish foods. with an extensive list of items.

Here are three of the dishes that will be served up at this event that Interfaithfamily.com gives a good guide on:

BABKA

What’s that mean? It means grandmother in Polish, probably because the Polish version of the cake looks like a tall hat that someone associated with their grandmother.

What's in it? The Jewish version is a yeasted cake with chocolate or cinnamon-sugar filling swirled through it.

What's it like? It's a very sweet cake with a bread-like crumb.

>>Eudora sets opening date to unveil new brewery

MATZAH BALLS 

What's that mean? Matzah ball is the English for knaidel, a round dumpling made of ground matzah (matzah meal).

What's in it? Most recipes call for matzah meal, egg and salt. Depending on the family tradition, they can also contain schmaltz, seltzer or broth.

What's it like? Some people prefer light, fluffy matzah balls that float in the soup. Others like substantial matzah balls that sink. Some prefer them with flavorings like ginger or dill, and others just want the flavor of the soup.

>>SNEAK PEEK: Here’s a glimpse inside Boonshoft’s brand new DINO attraction that’s got everyone excited

RUGELACH

What's that mean? Rugelach are cookies. The name comes from Yiddish diminutive of a Hebrew word, roglit, meaning vine. The "ch" at the end is like the one in Loch Ness.

What's in it? Rugelach are rolled up pastry dough with jam, raisins, chocolate and/or nuts rolled into them. Unless they are marked pareve, the dough is made with cream cheese or cottage cheese.

What's it like? The pastry is flaky and the fillings are sweet, and there's a nice contrast between the richness of the pastry and the fillings.

Dear Friend,

It is with great pleasure that we presen t you with this new edition of the Jew ish Calendar. The calendar offers Jewish art as well as facts and explanatory info Art rmation about Jewish life and history with an emphasis on Jewish holidays. We hop e you find it enjoyable and that it serves as an imp etus for further pursuit of Jewish stu dy and enriched experience of our heritage.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe

Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson This calendar is dedicated to the Rebbe. The Rebbe assumed leadership of the Chabad Lubavitch movement in 1950. Motivated by his profound love of humanity and spurred by boundless optimism and dedication, the Rebbe lifted the global Jewish community from the ashes of the Holocaust, launching an unprecedented range of Jewish institutions, outreach programs & social services. Today more than 4,600 of the Rebbe’s emissaries (Shluchim) and a work force of more than 20,000 continue and expand the Rebbe’s mission to create a world of goodness, kindness and G-dliness as Chabad constantly innovates new approaches in educational, social and community services throughout the world. May the Rebbe’s vision of a perfect world finally become a reality with the coming of Moshiach speedily in our days.

A clean, new, unmarked calendar is always exciting. It signals the opport unities in the time yet to come, potential in its mo st concentrated form. Time is our mo st pre and fleeting commodity ; making goo d use of our time is an ongoing challen cious ge and privilege. At Chabad we try our best to fill each day of the year with quality programming and services. We hope to make each day that will resonate positively far into day count and more importantly, make it a the future. This year is a special one for us Jews. According to Biblical command, the land may be worked for six years after wh ich it must be given a complete rest fro of Israel m agricultural pursuit. This is known as the Sabbatical year or Shnat Shmita. The eighth year in this cycle, which we begin this year—5776-- is called the Hakhel yea r, the year of gathering and unity. During the tim e of the Beth Hamikdash [Holy Tem ple] the Jewish people were called to gather togeth er— men, women, and children, includ ing the very little ones — into the Beth Hamik dash at the first opportunity (namely, Sukkot, when Jews came to Jerusalem on their pilgrimage) in order to hear portions of the Torah portions read by the king. The image of all the Jewish people gat hered to hear words of Torah from the Jewish king inspires us to greater efforts to gather in large groups with the pur pos strengthening our ties to each other, e of to G-d and to His holy Torah. We look forward to seeing you at all of our events during this special Hakhe l year! We extend our thanks to the advertiser s in this calendar and to all of our sup porters. With your continued assistance, we hope to strengthen, broaden and dee pen the scope of our work. We wish you and your loved ones a ble ssed New Year in every respect. May you be inscribed for a year of life and may we all be blessed with a year of peace in the Holy Land and the world over.

Rabbi Nochum Mangel

SEPTEMBER 2015 ELUL 5775 / TISHREI 5776 uwwga, hra,qvwwga, kukt ELUL 18 Known as Chai Elul, the “life” of Elul. Birthday of Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov (1698), founder of the Chassidic movement, and of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (1745), founder of the Chabad movement.

ELUL 21-22 After midnight, we recite Selichot (special penitential prayers). We continue to recite Selichot every weekday morning until Rosh Hashanah.

ROSH HASHANAH Rosh Hashanah (literally, the “head” of the year) is the beginning of the Jewish year – and the “birthday” of all of creation. It commemorates the creation of Adam and Eve, the first humans. Man was the first to acknowledge G-d’s kingship over the universe, and on Rosh Hashanah we renew this commitment to G-d and His commandments.

THE SHOFAR The sounding of the Shofar (the ram’s horn) is a central observance of Rosh Hashanah. The Shofar calls many things to mind: It symbolizes our coronation of G-d as King, it is a “Redemption”, by Haim Sherrf, [email protected]

“wake up call” to return to G-d, and it presages the coming of Moshiach, whose arrival will be heralded by the “Great Shofar”.

YOM KIPPUR Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, is the holiest day of the Jewish calendar. It is a day of spiritual cleansing: We acknowledge our shortcomings and transgressions, with a firm resolution for a better future; G-d promises us forgiveness, and the chance for a fresh start. We refrain from work, and avoid any food or drink, as well as washing, using oils or lotions, marital relations and regular (leather) shoes.

SUKKOT The name Sukkot is derived from the word Sukkah, or hut. In commemoration of the protective “clouds of glory” with which G-d surrounded the Jewish people on their way out of Egypt, we live in makeshift huts during the seven days of this holiday. During Sukkot, we observe the special mitzvah of shaking the Lulav (palm branch) and the Etrog (citron). Taken together with the Hadas (myrtle) and the Aravah (willow), these very different plant species represent the unity of disparate types of Jews who, each in their own way, are vital components of the Jewish nation.

OCTOBER 2015 TISHREI/CHESHVAN 5776 uwwga, iuajqhra, SIMCHAT TORAH

THE YEAR OF HAKHEL

Simchat Torah marks the day we complete the reading of the Torah in its annual cycle. On the evening of Simchat Torah, (and in many communities, on the previous evening of Shemini Atzeret as well) we make seven Hakafot (circuits) around the table upon which the Torah is read, dancing and rejoicing with the Torah scrolls. During morning services on Simchat Torah, we complete the Torah, reading the last Torah portion. We immediately start reading the Torah from the beginning again–remembering that the Torah is an endless source of wisdom, each cycle challenging us to discover its ever deeper meaning.

The Jewish year 5776, which began this past Rosh Hashanah, follows the year of Shmitah, the Sabbatical year, and is known as the year of Hakhel.

CHESHVAN 11 Passing of our Matriarch Rachel, wife of Yaakov. Rachel passed away in 1563 BCE as Yaakov was returning home to his parents. She is buried in Bethlehem.

LICENSEd, BONdEd & INSUREd

During the Temple times, a special service was held in Jerusalem on the second day of Sukkot. The entire nation, men, women, and even children gathered as the king read selected verses of the Torah, reminding everyone of our commitment to following its teachings. This gathering, like the Sabbatical year which preceded it, occurred once in seven years, and the entire year was called the year of Hakhel (gathering). Though this mitzvah isn’t practiced today, it is customary for there to put an extra focus on Jewish unity during the year of Hakhel, especially through gatherings in which words of Torah are shared.

NOVEMBER 2015 CHESHVAN/KISLEV 5776 uwwga, ukxfqiuaj THE WEEKLY TORAH READING According to our tradition, the custom of reading from the Torah in the Synagogue every Shabbat is one of the oldest Jewish customs, instituted by Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses) himself. The Torah was divided by Moshe into 54 portions, which is the maximum number of regular readings possible during a Jewish calendar year. The regular cycle is suspended during Jewish holidays, when we read holiday themed portions instead. Most years, it becomes necessary to occasionally group two portions together in order to complete the cycle on time for Simchat Torah. Our lives are built around the calendar cycles: The year, the month, the week. Every day, the current Torah Reading offers a fresh source of inspiration. Though repeated again and again, there is always a new insight, a new guidance, a new commentary on the here and the now. This is the Jewish way of “living with the times.”

SHABBAT AND FESTIVAL CANDLES Throughout the ages, light has stirred the imagination of poets, mystics, scientists and psychologists. Because its nature is so different from other material entities, it is often used to describe spiritual insight. Shabbat is a day of light; its pattern and value-orientation is different from the other days of the week. Thus it is the lighting of the Shabbat Candles that ushers in this state of awareness and inspires us to feel the way it permeates our lives. The mystics call this day of light the Shabbat Queen, and the responsibility for lighting the candles and inducing this change of perspective is the woman’s. It is she who welcomes the Shabbat Queen into the home. Young girls, from the age of three or younger, are encouraged to light their own candles, to involve and educate them in this profound and beautiful mitzvah. “Shabbat Candles”, by Elena Flerova, www.NERArtGallery.com ~ 845.213.4338

SHEVAT 10 Yartzeit of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, sixth leader of Chabad Lubavitch (1950). Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak fought to preserve Jewish life in the U.S.S.R. until he was imprisoned, threatened with his life, and finally forced to leave (1927). In 1940 he came to the United States and established the network of Chabad-Lubavitch educational institutions throughout the U.S.A. and across the world. This day also marks the beginning of the leadership of his son-in-law Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, known as the Lubavitcher Rebbe.

SHEVAT 15 – TU B’SHEVAT In Jewish tradition, the fifteenth day of Shevat marks the “New Year” for the trees, opening the season in which trees begin to bud in the Holy Land. It is customary to celebrate this date by enjoying some fruit, especially the five fruits mentioned in the Torah in connection with the Land of Israel: Grapes, Figs, Pomegranates, Olives, and Dates.

THE JEWISH CALENDAR The Jewish calendar is the only calendar to which both the monthly and annual units are governed by real astronomical events: The lunar month, and the solar year. The word for month in the Torah is either chodesh (“renewal”), or yerach (“moon”), both hinting at a lunar month. At the same time, the Torah commands us to ensure that the holiday of Passover always occurs in the spring, hinting at a solar year. Because twelve lunar months are approximately 11 days short of a solar year, it becomes necessary to occasionally add a 13th month, Adar I, to the Jewish calendar year, which is then called a Leap Year. Our sages have devised a system of 19-year cycles, 7 of which are declared leap years. This includes this year, the final year of the 304th cycle.

CA NDLE LIGHTING

It is considered a great Mitzvah and responsibility to honor the Shabbat by lighting candles 18 minutes before sunset on Friday evenings and on the eve of Jewish festivals. (The times provided in our calendar are for the local area only). This unique commandment, entrusted to the Jewish woman, is rich with meaning and purpose. In a world so full of darkness, the candles lit by Jewish women and girls bring light, joy and holiness. A little light, our sages say, dispels much darkness.

Married women should light at least two candles, corresponding to the commandments of “Remember the Shabbos (Exodus 20:8) and “Observe the Shabbos” (Deuteronomy 5:12). Single women, including young girls from the age of three, light one candle only. Shabbat candles must be lit NO LATER than the time specified on the calendar. If there is no woman in the house, the head of the household should light the candles. It is customary to give charity before lighting the candles. Contact our office for a charity box.

BLESSINGS & INSTRUCTIONS FOR SH A BBAT CA NDLES First light the candles. Then spread your hands out around the candles drawing your hands inward in a circular motion three times to indicate the acceptance of the sanctity of Shabbat. You then cover your eyes and recite the following blessing: Transliteration: Boruch A-toh Ado-noi E-lo-hei-nu Me-lech Ho-olom A-sher Ki-de-sha-nu Be-mitz-vo-sov Ve-tzi-vo-nu Le-had-lik Ner Shel Shabos Ko-desh

Translation: Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us to kindle the light of the holy Shabbat. Uncover your eyes and behold the Shabbat lights. The time of lighting is considered especially propitious for praying to G-d for health and happiness. The prayer is readily acceptable because it is offered during the performance of this great mitzvah of lighting Shabbat candles. Make sure to light the candles before sunset.

PROCEDURE FOR FESTI VA L CA NDLE LIGHTING The procedure for lighting candles on the eve of the holidays is basically the same as the Shabbat candle lighting, except for the following details and blessings (which differ from one festival to another): • It is permissible to kindle the holiday candles after sundown (except when occuring on the Shabbat), however lighting the candles has to be Blessings for the holiday of Rosh Hashanah: Bo-ruch A-toh Ado-noi E-lo-hei-nu Me-lech Hoolom A-sher Ki-de-sha-nu Be-mitz-vo-sov Ve-tzi-vonu Le-had-lik Ner Shel Yom Ha-zi-karon.

from a pre-existing flame. • When lighting on a Friday, light before sunset. • When lighting on a Saturday evening, the earliest one may light is an hour after sunset.

LETS WELCOME MOSHIACH Since the time of the prophets of Israel, Jews have been awaiting the final redemption and the coming of Moshiach. In fact, the belief in Moshiach is listed by Maimonides as one of the thirteen principles of the Jewish faith. In 1991, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, declared to the world that ‘The time

of Redemption has arrived!’. He initiated the Let’s Welcome Moshiach campaign - urging Jewish people to prepare for and hasten the upcoming redemption, by increasing in Torah study, particularly on the topic of redemption, and adding in the observance of Mitzvoth. We invite you to join the Let’s Welcome Moshiach

MARCH 2016 ADAR I/ADAR II 5776 uwwga, c rstqt rst PURIM The actual story of Purim, as told in the Scroll of Esther, is as fascinating and spellbinding as any best seller. Yet, though it is sacred scripture, we do not find the name of G-d mentioned even once! But within the intricate details of the Megillah, we can detect the unmistakable hand of Divine Providence. And the closer we examine the story, the more we discover that even seemingly insignificant events are precisely arranged by the hand of the Almighty.

THE MITZVOT OF PURIM ARE: • T he Fast of Esther, held before Purim, to commemorate the day of prayer and fasting which the Jews held before their victory. • Listen to the reading of Megillat Esther (the Scroll of Esther) at night and day, recounting the story of Purim. • Send gifts containing at least two types of ready-to-eat Kosher foods to one or more friends on the day of Purim. These gifts, called Mishloach Manot (“sending portions”), should preferably be sent via a third party. • G  ive Matanot L’evyonim (“gifts of charity to the poor”). While Tzedakah (charity) is a year-round responsibility, it is a particularly special Mitzvah on Purim. Give to at least two needy individuals during Purim day. • Celebrate with a special festive and joyous meal.

APRIL 2016 ADAR II/NISSAN 5776 uwwga, ixhbqc rst NISAN 11 Birthday of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson (1902).

CELEBRATING PESACH (PASSOVER) On Pesach we celebrate the birth of the Jewish nation with our miraculous redemption from Egypt. Pesach is celebrated by refraining from eating (or evening owning) any foods which are chametz (leavened), and by participating in a Seder dinner on the first two nights of the holiday.

THE SEDER The Pesach Seder, conducted each of the first two nights of Pesach, is the central event of the Passover festival. • We drink four cups of wine (or grape juice), remembering the redemption and its four stages. • We ask the “Four Questions” and recite the “Shabbat and the Redemption”, by Haim Sherrf, [email protected]

Haggadah, retelling the story of Passover and the miracles of our redemption. • We eat Shmurah Matzah, unleavened bread which isn’t allowed to rise, remembering both the simple bread of slaves and the swiftness of the redemption from Egypt. • We eat Maror (bitter herbs), remembering the bitterness of the enslavement.

THE LAST DAY OF PESACH The eighth and final day of Pesach is associated with the ultimate redemption through Moshiach, and our fervent hope for its imminent arrival. In many communities, a festive “Moshiach Meal” is organized toward the evening, to emphasize this day’s special dimension.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP Contact our office for more information about removal and sale of chometz, shmurah matzah, Seder preparations, or anything else you need to know about the holiday.

MAY 2016 NISSAN/IYAR 5776 COUNTING OF THE OMER: Beginning the second evening of Pesach, we count seven weeks until the arrival of the festival of Shavuot. They correspond to the seven weeks, starting from the night after the Exodus, during which our ancestors eagerly awaited the receiving of the Torah at Mount Sinai.

PESACH SHENI When the Holy Temple stood in Jerusalem, this day offered a second chance to offer the Passover sacrifice for those who had been unable to bring their offering at the appropriate time.

IYAR 18 – LAG BA’OMER On this date, in the early 2nd century, the students of Rabbi Akiva, the greatest sage of that era, ceased to die from an epidemic. Years later on this same date, his student Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, Mishnaic sage and author of the Zohar (the seminal work of Kabbalah) passed away. Having fulfilled his mission in this world he asked that the anniversary of his death be celebrated as a joyous occasion.

KOSHER Kashrut: Spiritual Diet for a Small Planet

For our physical wellbeing, few things are as important as a healthy diet. But the Kosher laws offer the soul similar benefits, and more. The mystical masters teach us that everything we eat has a bit of holiness – a “spark” of Divine energy released when we eat foods prepared in accord with the kosher laws. Just as the body responds to the quality of the food that fuels it, so too the soul: With appropriate foods prepared in the prescribed manner, we absorb the Divine nourishment that makes for a healthy spirit. Adapting your diet to a kosher life style is easier than you might imagine. The shelves of your local supermarket are stocked with literally hundreds and even thousands of products produced under kosher supervision.

JUNE 2016 IYAR/SIVAN 5776 uwwga, iuhxqrhht THE FESTIVAL OF SHAVUOT: Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. It is on this day that we became G-d’s “chosen people”, and He formed a bond with us which shall never be broken.

SHAVUOT OBSERVANCES: • All-night Torah-study on the first night of Shavuot. This is the best preparation for receiving the Torah! • Reading of the Ten Commandments in the synagogue on the first day of Shavuot. Bring your children too! • A festive dairy meal is served on the first day of Shavuot. Like milk for an infant, we receive all our spiritual nourishment from the Torah!

TEFILLIN Tefillin, or phylacteries, are donned every weekday by Jewish men and boys over the age of 13. The Torah describes Tefillin as a sign, a public statement of Jewish involvement. By donning Tefillin daily, an individual gives expression to his basic feeling of Jewish identity and its importance to him. The Tefillin are placed on the arm facing the heart, and on the head. This signifies the binding of one’s emotional and intellectual powers to the service of G-d. The straps, stretching from the arm to the hand and from the head to the legs, signify the transmission of intellectual and emotional energy to the hands and feet, symbolizing deed and action. “Ruth”, by Dennis Bacchus, www.NERArtGallery.com ~ 845.213.4338

JULY 2016 SIVAN/TAMMUZ 5776 uwwga, zun,qiuhx TAMMUZ 3 Passing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson (1994). The Rebbe’s contribution to Jews and Judaism in this generation is immeasurable. Under his leadership and guidance, thousands of young couples have dedicated their lives, through the global network of Chabad Lubavitch institutions, to spread Yiddishkeit throughout the globe. His vision and promise of an imminent redemption, and a world filled with G-dliness, peace and harmony continues to inspire millions throughout the world. Through our efforts, it shall surely soon become a reality.

TAMMUZ 12 Birthday of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak, sixth leader of Chabad Lubavitch (1880), and his release from Bolshevik imprisonment (1927). He was imprisoned and threatened with his life for his struggle to preserve Judaism in the Soviet Union. His release was celebrated throughout the Jewish world as a victory for Jewry and Judaism.

A PERIOD OF MOURNING

“Lean On Me”, by Haim Sherrf, [email protected]

With Best Wishes to the Jewish Community Larry S. Glickler 937-278-4287 Dayton’s only Jewish Funeral Director

Glickler Funeral Home Chabad of Greater Dayton w 937-643-0770 w www.ChabadDayton.com

The 17th of Tammuz is observed as a fast day. On this date, in the year 68, the walls of Jerusalem were breached by the Romans after years of siege. The Jewish forces continued to defend the Temple Mount

for another 19 days, until it too fell on the 7th of Av. The Beit HaMikdash, the Holy Temple, was torched late on Av 9. This entire period, totalling 21 days, is observed by not scheduling any weddings, as well as by avoiding festive music and dancing. This year, because the fast days fall on Shabbat, they are both postponed to Sunday.

THE UPCOMING REDEMPTION The belief in the upcoming redemption is one of the foundations of our faith, and has been promised to us by almost every one of our prophets, beginning with Moses himself. Maimonides included it in his famous Thirteen Principles of the Jewish Faith. Throughout the ages, even during the most trying times, our ancestors have always prayed for and looked forward to the coming of Moshiach, our redeemer.

LET’S WELCOME MOSHIACH Led by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, many prominent Rabbis proclaimed this generation to be the one to usher in the redemption. We can prepare for this special time by studying the relevant passages in the Torah and its commentaries, and by increasing in acts of goodness and kindness. This will not only help us prepare for the redemption – this will hasten its arrival!

AUGUST 2016 TAMMUZ/MENACHEM AV 5776 uwwga, ct ojbnqzun, TISH’A B’AV – THE NINTH OF AV The Ninth of Av has been a sad day on the Jewish calendar from the earliest days of our history as a people. Just one year after our forefathers left Egypt, it was on this date that G-d punished that generation, decreeing that they would wander the desert for forty years, never entering into the Holy Land. The focus of our mourning, however, is on the destruction on this date of both the first Temple (422 BCE) and the second Temple (68 CE). From the beginning of the month of Av (excluding Shabbat), we refrain from consuming meat or wine and from various pleasurable activities as a sign of additional mourning. The Ninth of Av itself is observed as a fast day similar to Yom Kippur. We refrain from “And Then We Will Treck Up, and Be Seen ...”, by Natalya Solominsky, www.NERArtGallery.com ~ 845.213.4338

food and drink, as well as from wearing leather shoes, washing or showering, using oils or lotions, and marital relations. Additionally, on the eve of the fast, the scroll of Eichah (Lamentations) is read in the synagogue in a unique chant, which is mournful yet reassuring. Until noon we sit on low seats only, as a mourner does during Shiva. May we merit seeing the ultimate redemption and rebuilding of the Temple by Moshiach, now!

AV 15 Several joyful events have occurred on this date, including the end of the 40-year decree upon the Jewish people to wander and die in the desert after leaving Egypt. This date is particularly joyful as it occurs just as we conclude the mourning period over the destruction of the Temple.

SEPTEMBER 2016 MENACHEM AV/ELUL 5776 uwwga, kuktqct ojbn ELUL The month of Elul is the time to reflect on the passing year, to examine our behavior and to correct any shortcomings. In synagogues throughout the world, extra prayers are recited daily and the Shofar is sounded every weekday.

THE KING IS IN THE FIELD When the king leaves his guarded palace and travels through the fields, he makes himself accessible to all – and the people stop what they are doing and come out to greet him, excited by the rare opportunity to see their king up-close. During the month of Elul, G-d is more accessible to us, His people. This notion compels us to stop and reach out to him through repentance, prayer and charity.

ELUL 18 Known as Chai Elul, the “life” of Elul. Birthday of Rabbi Israel Baal Shem Tov (1698), founder of the Chassidic movement, and of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi (1745), founder of the Chabad movement.

ELUL 21-22 After midnight, we recite Selichot (special penitential prayers). We continue to recite Selichot every weekday morning until Rosh Hashanah.

Upcoming Course: Outsmarting Antisemitism

Rise above the Hate

We cannot let antisemitism define our Judaism, but we cannot ignore it either. As direct memory of the Holocaust fades, Jews around the world are wondering whether the patterns of past centuries are returning, in both the Old and New Worlds, where Jews experience more hate crimes than any other group.

Are Jewish people doomed to be stuck in this cycle forever? Is there a way to escape this history of hate?

Outsmarting Antisemitism takes this dark subject on squarely, with a sense of unabashed optimism, profound faith, and a distinctly Jewish approach.

Through illuminating source texts and captivating case studies, this course considers the sources of this ancient scourge, along with the appropriate strategies for overcoming it. It’s time to find the confidence to fight hate with hope and to stand tall against antisemitism with positivity, purpose, and plenty of Jewish pride!

Course Details

Lesson 1The Eternal People

By taking another look at the statistics, studying our people’s remarkable perseverance, and exploring the concept of Providence, we can find eternal cause for confidence and optimism while we implement plans to secure ourselves and our communities.

Lesson 2No Apologies

We look at some of the explanations for antisemitism that have been offered throughout the ages to emerge with an important principle: the problem with hating Jews lies not with the Jews but with the haters. Internalizing this hate is not a healthy response.

Lesson 3The Promised Land

Today, hatred of Jews commonly manifests itself as antagonism toward the Jewish State. This class distinguishes all-out antisemitism from some more nuanced sub-strains. It also examines the state of Israel education and the very nature of Jewish nationhood.

Lesson 4Change of Heart

Psychology, neuroscience, and recent history show us that neither friend nor foe should ever be taken for granted. With a bit of subtlety and conviction, and always with trust in G-d, we find that the dark days of the past are no cause for pessimism ahead.

Dates & Times: Outsmarting Antisemitism

EndorsementsEndorsements, Reviews and Comments of JLI's Courses and Programs.
Professor Judea Pearl (Father of Daniel Pearl)Director, Cognitive Systems Laboratory, University of California, Los Angeles

It is history that gives humans the sense of immortality and a bond that transcends passing differences. I applaud JLI for launching this worldwide study of Jewish history, a unique opportunity to rediscover our collective identity.

Natan SharanskyNoted Soviet dissident, Former Member of Israeli Knesset

In these tumultuous times, strengthening our identity is critical. JLI's course, The Land and the Spirit, provides an intriguing opportunity to connect to our roots, to be empowered by a personal link with our people and history, and to understand our bond to Israel. It is only by drawing a clear line from the past to the present that each of us can chart a course for a creative, constructive, and fulfilling future as part of the Jewish People.

Professor Alan M. DershowitzFelix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Harvard Law School

I found the Rohr JLI course You Be The Judge fascinating. If my first-year students had been exposed to this material before starting law school, they would be better prepared for the rigors of the Socratic method.

Elyakim RubinsteinIsraeli Supreme Court Justice, Former Attorney General of Israel

Many thanks for sharing with me the exciting Rohr JLI curriculum of You Be The Judge and for the excellent idea of bringing the treasure of Jewish law, a major point of Jewish life and Jewish ethos, to the attention of interested people.

Ellen Langer, PhDProfessor of Psychology, Harvard University, Bestselling Author of eleven books including Mindfulness, Counterclockwise: Mindful Health and The Power of Possibility, Cambridge, MA

On the level of the individual to the level of culture, the ills we experience, by and large, result from mindlessness. The wisdom discussed in Toward a Meaningful Life should be widely read to help provoke a reversal of this trend and lead us to mindful lives full of everyday meaning.

Professor Jonathan D. Sarna Director, Hornstein Jewish Professional Leadership Program, Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Brandeis University

I am delighted to learn that the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute has created the course entitled Flashbacks in Jewish History. The great encounters between Judaism and its surrounding civilizations are of paramount importance for anyone seeking to understand Jewish life in the past as well as in the present.

Sir Martin GilbertLeading Historian Official Biographer of Sir Winston Churchill

The Rohr Jewish Learning Institute and Rabbi Aaron Herman are to be congratulated for their challenging course, The Land and The Spirit, in which the spiritual values and centrality of the Land of Israel are expounded through a fascinating range of religious and secular texts. These texts span a remarkably wide range of opinions, from Moses to Herzl, from Rashi to Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, from Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson to Natan Sharansky (There is No Zionism Without Judaism), from the Talmud to the opinion writers of the Jerusalem Post. These texts, like the course itself, will serve a noble cause in stimulating thought and encouraging understanding.

Marlene PostPresident, Hadassah International, Chair for North America, Birthright Israel (Taglit)

The story of our people is filled with tales of leadership and vision, kindness and compassion. These are the gifts that enriched our own communities, and they are gifts we have shared with others around the world. The past provides us the inspiration to continue to work for the betterment of society.
