Discussions & Forums
Sunday Forums feature a range of topics including current events, humanism, political issues, science-based studies, and Jewish culture. The sessions are held at Kol Shalom Center on designated Sundays from 11:00 A.M. to 12:30 P.M., a time when parents of children in our Sunday School can possibly attend. A lively discussion tends to follow the presentation. Check the Kol Shalom calendar for topics and presenters.
Sounding Board -- Open Discussion Group
Sounding Board is a facilitated discussion group that meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month, 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at the Kol Shalom Center.
Do you like to test your ideas about politics, government, the arts and world affairs with others? Do you like the challenge of enlightened discussions? What makes you mad, sad or glad? International, national, state, local issues? Film? Theatre? Jewish culture?
Come and bring your friends; this group is free and open to the public. Contact the Kol Shalom Center for more information.
Let’s Talk programs began in 2006 as an experiment with spontaneous member-led programs. The topics were whatever the “leader” decided he or she wanted to share informally and casually with a small group. One member led a video program about his favorite comedian, Sid Caesar. Another member led a Tai Chi session. One session was devoted to a discussion of compassion fatigue and its effect on how we continue to work for a better world. Usually these sessions are held on Saturday afternoons when more Community Room time is open. Call the Kol Shalom office if you would like to make such a presentation so that we can revive “Let’s Talk.”
