Fourth Successful TI University

Tikvat Israel’s Adult Education Committee staged its fourth annual Tikvat Israel University on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020 showcasing the particular expertise and talents of its own congregants. The event consisted of four 45-minute time blocks with topical sessions offered in five learning tracks: Public Affairs, Law and History, Judaism and Israeli Affairs, How Do I … ? and Health. Among the session topics: “Advocating for Israeli Achievements Creatively,” “Getting the Most Out of Your Doctor’s Appointment,” “Coronavirus: Responding to Pandemics,” “Concise Writing” and “From Deuteronomy to Dershowitz: A History of Lost Meaning.”

“This people-powered, once-a-year event helps to promote TI’s mission that ‘Everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn,’” said event organizer Sally Kram, chair of the Adult Education Committee.
