New Scholar In Residence Program

The Education Committee of the Temple Board of Trustees, announces the schedule of speakers for the Scholar in Residence Program, part of our Life Long Learning Series. Please join us on these selected Sunday mornings at 10:00 am, at the JCC. This is in place of Parenting in the Parasha class.


March 18: Dr. Robert Ruberg, Professor Emeritus and senior adviser in the Departments of Plastic Surgery and Urology at OSU, will lead a discussion on Life and Loss in Columbus, 1918: An Introduction to the Columbus Jewish Historical Society’s 2018 exhibit. The year 1918 brought many challenges to the Jewish community of central Ohio, including World War I and the devastating Spanish Flu epidemic.


April 8: Professor Mitchell Snay, of Denison University. Professor Snay's area of interest, is nineteenth-century America. He will be discussing Political Violence: John Brown’s Raid on Harper’s Ferry in 1859, and the Ku Klux Klan in the Reconstruction South.


We invite you to come and nourish your minds in discussion of lively topics. Coffee will be available.
