What is Judaism? A Course for Newcomers and Lifetime Learners

The 10 one-hour sessions are designed to clarify how the basic values and activities of Judaism are distinct from those of other faith systems, and how they make for a joyous, purposeful and intellectually vigorous way of living. This year, three of the sessions occur just before Rosh Hashanah, during Sukkot and just before Chanukah, so we detour at those times to notice how each of these holidays fits within Jewish history and practices.

On the Map

Join ODU Basketball Coach Jeff Jones and Filmmaker Dani Menkin to talk about Basketball, Israel, and the uplifting film about the 1977 Israeli Basketball team, On the Map.

On The Map tells the story of the ’77 team, the one that brought the first European Cup to Israel and became “The Team of the Nation.”

Featuring interviews with the Jewish-American athletes who made history, On the Map combines the pulse pounding action of a high-stakes game with an incendiary political situation at the height of the Cold War to deliver a film that honors Israeli heroes, mesmerizes fans of the game and captures the spirit of a nation triumphant and victorious against all odds.
