The KJ Men’s club offers something for everyone in KJ and the broader Jewish community. Some of our programs include Kiddush Discussions led by fascinating speakers; Chug Ivri for lovers of the Hebrew language; film screenings featuring directors, producers, and actors; the annual Men’s Club Shabbaton in memory of former president Dr. Stephen Stowe; and the Sunday Supper Lecture series. The Men’s Club also presents guest speakers at the weekly Seudah Shlishit and invites the community to a Shavuot Eve Dinner, where Divrei Torah from Ramaz Middle School students are showcased, followed by a stimulating Shavuot Lecture.
This week (4.29) a delicious, hot congregational kiddush follows services, at the conclusion of which the Men's Club invites the entire community to a Kiddush Discussion program with Kenneth S. Stern, Executive Director of the Justus and Karin Rosenberg Foundation. He will speak on Why Efforts to Confront Campus Antisemitism Must Promote Academic Freedom? He will discuss the question of Antisemitism (and anti-Israel animus) on some college campuses, tracing Jewish communal approaches since the 1980's, and demonstrate how these approaches which promote academic freedom have been more successful, and efforts that curtailing academic freedom (likesome current legislative efforts) are counterproductive and make matters worse.
