Upcoming Adult Education Events

Olympic Pride, American Prejudice with author and filmmaker Deborah Riley Draper

Tuesday, June 30

12-1 PM (PT)

TBT is proud to be a community partner with the Holocaust Center for Humanity for this Lunch & Learn program next Tuesday. Set against the turbulent backdrop of a segregated United States, 16 black men and two black women are torn between boycotting the Olympic Games in Nazi Germany or participating. If they go, they would represent a country that considered them second-class citizens and would compete amid a strong undercurrent of Aryan superiority that considered them inferior. Yet, if they stayed, would they ever have to chance to prove them wrong on a global stage? Learn more and join the program.

Chocolate Challah Baking

Thursday, July 16

6:30 PM

Bake along with Perry Blankinship and learn her secret recipe and methods for making her award-winning chocolate challah. RSVP is required! Registration is limited, but we can repeat the class if there’s an overflow of interest. Email contact@templebnaitorah.org for the recipe and the Zoom link for the class.

Community Conversation About Race

Thursday, July 23

6:30 PM

Read or listen to “So you want to talk about race” by local author Ijeoma Oluo then join a discussion about the book and why we want to talk about race as a community. And not just talk, but take action to make a difference. The book is available digitally at the King County Library System as an audiobook or eBook. It’s lively and entertaining, in addition to being about a serious topic that many of us are curious to explore further. Email contact@templebnaitorah.org for the Zoom link.
