Staff Council Learning Lunch -- Judaism
Led by Rabbi Ira Schiffer
Wednesday, July 27, 2011
12:00 noon, Warner Hemicycle
Starting about a year ago, Staff Council followed up on the recommendations of some staff members that Staff Council help employees further develop current interests or stimulate new ones by providing opportunities to benefit from the stellar learning resources available on campus and nearby. One of the ideas proposed was to have a series of talks that would each focus on a different religion.
Staff Council is very pleased that Rabbi Ira Schiffer has agreed to help us kick off this ongoing series by presenting an overview of Judaism.
Please BRING YOUR LUNCH, and join us at noon on July 27th in Warner Hemicycle.
