Welcome to Epstein's Electives for 2019-20!
Epstein is friends, new ideas, Jewish community... and YOU!
MODERN HEBREW - Moshe Alfasi
Find it hard to learn a language just from reading a text book? Ein baya - no problem! Improve your Hebrew through conversation, reading and writing, songs and games!
CHELM AND OTHER JEWISH STORIES - Ora Jezer
(This class is geared toward 7th-9th graders.)
Do you know the people of Chelm? Come read a few satirical and entertaining stories of the small Polish town of Chelm, and then we’ll decide together between “The Mystery of the Coins”, by Chaya M. Burstein or “The Other Side of the Hudson”, A Hewish Immigrant Adventure, by Kenneth Roseman.
JEWS AND THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY - Rabbi Fellman and Sam Young
(This class is only for 9th-12th graders.)
We are in the middle of a fascinating and challenging election right now. Our class will explore how Jews have interacted with U.S. Presidents throughout history, from George Washington through Donald Trump.
