Thursday, May 14 --- Rabbi Julia Appel --- Fighting Antisemitism Through Relationships

"Fighting" antisemitism on campus could involve filing complaints, creating protests, petitioning, and involving police or administration. We'll discuss what a relationship-based alternative approach might look like, building relationships to increase understanding and collaboration. We'll look at Jewish texts for inspiration and discuss methods for relationship-building, feedback, and allyship that work. We'll also look at case studies to apply our new techniques.

Rabbi Julia Appel currently serves as the Senior Jewish Educator and Campus Rabbi for Hillel at the University of Toronto. A frequent contributor to the CJN, Rabbi Appel serves on the Executive of the Toronto Board of Rabbis. Her fields of interest are young adult outreach, institutional change, neo-Chassidism, spirituality and contemplative practice, Jewish wisdom literature, feminism, antisemitism, and equity and inclusion in Jewish community. She holds a B.A. in Social Studies from Harvard University and M.A. in Jewish Studies and rabbinic ordination from Hebrew College.

 

Thursday, May 21--- Ann Samson --- The Jews of India, a Historical & Sociological Overview

The Lecture focuses primarily on the history of the three main Jewish communities in India – the Bene Israel, Cochin and Baghdadi Jews. It will include a brief overview of the community structure, synagogues, cemeteries and Jewish day schools.

Born and raised in Bombay, India, in an observant Jewish home, Ann Samson immigrated with her husband to Canada in 1966.  She holds a Master of Education degree in Administration & Supervision from New York’s Niagara University, and a Bachelor of Education, as well as a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) from the University of Bombay.  Mrs. Samson is a founding member, Past President and current Director on the Board of Congregation BINA (A Community of Jews from India).

Thursday, June 18 --- Pippa Feinstein --- Indigenous-Jewish Relations, how Jewish communities can contribute to reconciliation on Turtle Island

Reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people has become an increasingly prevalent subject of discussion and action amongst diverse segments of civil society and governments. However, what does 'reconciliation' mean? This talk will explore how Jewish Canadians can offer unique contributions and insights, given certain similarities (and distinctions) between the histories of Jewish and Indigenous peoples.

Pippa Feinstein is a lawyer, mediator, and researcher based in Toronto. She has her own legal practice and works exclusively with non-profit organizations on a broad range of public advocacy work, including research concerning violence against Indigenous women.

 

Thursday, June 25 --- Amnon Zohar --- Understating the Middle East Future world peace and prosperity will largely depend on what happens in the Middle East

The "Arab Spring" of 2011 created more conflicts and civil wars of even greater complexity than the Arab-Israeli 100 years conflict. The gigantic Sunni-Shia war for Islam supremacy between Saudi Arabia and Iran, the civil wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, the rise of radical Islam in the form of ISIS and Al Qaeda ,the effects of climate change, the  abuse and corruption of autocratic regimes and the rival Superpowers all vying for influence in the most contested real estate on earth.  Understanding the Middle East offers a much deeper understanding of the key issues and conflicts, filters media sensationalism and partisanship and facilitates interpretation of current events from a deeper cultural and political perspective 

Amnon Zohar is a hi-tech business entrepreneur and founder of internet and social media companies. He was born and educated in Israel and is a graduate of the Israeli Academy for Computer Sciences. He studied Political Science and International Relations at York University for three years. After spending forty years in Canada, he went back to Israel for a sabbatical year as a student, at the University of Tel-Aviv, majoring in International Relations, Islamic, Middle East and Global Security studies.  He possesses an in-depth understanding of the political and social environments in the Middle East and his lecture series “Understanding the Middle East” offers a unique perspective that would appeal to all Canadians.

The Lecture focuses primarily on the history of the three main Jewish communities in India – the Bene Israel, Cochin and Baghdadi Jews. It will include a brief overview of the community structure, synagogues, cemeteries and Jewish day schools.

Born and raised in Bombay, India, in an observant Jewish home, Ann Samson immigrated with her husband to Canada in 1966.  She holds a Master of Education degree in Administration & Supervision from New York’s Niagara University, and a Bachelor of Education, as well as a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) from the University of Bombay.  Mrs. Samson is a founding member, Past President and current Director on the Board of Congregation BINA (A Community of Jews from India).

    What is the Progam Cancellation Policy?

    Unless otherwise specified by a program director or within any other documentation, the following cancellation policy and JCC Credit timetable applies to all Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs:

    For Programs that Meet Fewer Than 3 Times

    Due to the costs and booking commitments associated with short-term programs, we regret that we cannot offer any JCC Credit for programs, classes, or events that meet fewer than three times per programming season. Additionally, The Schwartz/Reisman Centre cannot be responsible for providing make-ups or issuing any credit for programs missed as a result of personal scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other circumstances beyond our control. If you are unable to attend a program in this category, we encourage you to consider your registration fee a form of support for the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, helping to sustain wonderful programs.

    For Programs that Meet 3+ Times

    You may receive JCC Credit for withdrawal from a program when your cancellation request conforms to the timetable outlined below. Please note there is a $15 processing fee for all transfers and cancellations.

    - Full JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a Schwartz/Reisman Centre program when a written request is received at least one week before the date of the first class.

    - 50% JCC Credit will be granted for withdrawal from a JCC program when a written request is received before the second class.

    - After the second class, JCC Credit cannot be granted. (However, you may transfer from one class to another of equal or lesser value if there is space available and with the program director's approval.)

    - All cancellation requests must be submitted in writing to: The Schwartz Reisman Centre 9600 Bathurst Street, Vaughan Ontario, L6A 3Z8, Attn: Registration; or by e-mail to info@srcentre.ca. Please allow three to four weeks for processing of your cancellation request.

    *All JCC programs and events are subject to change or cancellation. However, in the event that the JCC must cancel its own program, refunds will be issued. The policy articulated here applies to The Schwartz Reisman Centre only, and does not apply to Centre Camp, The Schwartz Reisman Centre daycare and preschool or The Schwartz Reisman Centre Fitness and Health.

    What is required to receive the Member Discount on Programs?

    In order to receive the member discount on programs, the Schwartz/Reisman Centre requires that participants be active members at the time of registration and throughout the duration of the registered program(s).

    Please be advised that the Schwartz/Reisman Centre operates on a JCC Credit only policy and does not issue any refunds unless otherwise advised and approved by a program director.

    JCC Credit applied to your JCC account can be redeemed for any program at the JCC (not including Centre Camp and Schwartz/Reisman Centre daycare and preschool), can be used by any family member on your account, and carries no expiration date.

    When does Program Registration close?

    Registration for Schwartz/Reisman Centre programs closes one week before the start date of a course. For some classes we accept registrations until the program has reached 50% of its classes.

    We recommend registering as early as possible, as many programs have limited space, and other programs depend upon a certain enrollment number to ensure they will run. Your place in a program can only be guaranteed when accompanied by payment.
