The Parsha this week is Yitro, where the Children of Israel arrive at Mount Sinai. The Zoom link will be distributed. If you don't get it, contact administrator, Jan Lowell: email@example.com
Uria Roth, our Milwaukee community Shaliach will present, Our New Friends- Israel’s New Peace Agreements.
The Abraham Accords Peace Agreements were “a major policy achievement by the Trump administration.” The Abraham Accords marks the first normalization of relations between Arab countries and Israel since 1994. Uria will help us understand why these agreements are happening now and how the Accords will impact the relationship between the Palestinians and Israel. He will also discuss what the future possibly holds for the Middle East. A zoom link will be sent to CEEW Sisterhood members and women who have requested to be notified of programming. Contact Cindy Levy at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the link.

Adult Education Presents Milwaukee JCRC Program on Anti-Semitism
We will be joined by Allison Hayden from the Milwaukee Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) to talk about the most recent trends in antisemitic behavior and the 2020 survey which is just about to be released.
Allison Hayden is a Program Associate at the Milwaukee Jewish Federation. She compiles a yearly Audit of Antisemitic Incidents for the state of Wisconsin. The preliminary audit for 2020 is showing concerning changes in trends and an increase in people willing to express hateful attitudes. Allison will speak about the current trends in antisemitism here in Wisconsin.
Look for a Zoom link that will be sent to CEEW members and come with questions.
