Jews on the moon
Sunday, April 14 | 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Bender JCC Rockville
Israel’s first lunar spacecraft, aptly named “Beresheet” (“in the beginning”) has taken Israeli and Judaism much farther than ever before. Beresheet is led by a team of three young Israeli engineers who formed the team “SpaceIL.” The Beresheet is expected to land on the moon on April 11th. If successful, Israel will become the fourth nation in history to land on the moon, preceded only by three superpowers: the US, the USSR, and China.
Come celebrate with us!
We will celebrate this spirited endeavor on Sunday, April 14th, from 3 PM to 5 PM, with family engagements and flash 10-minute talks on science and Judaism, and much more.

The Haberman Institute for Jewish Studies presents:
Event: From New Christians to French Citizens: The Jews of the Bordeaux Region
with Dr. Geraldine Gudefin, Adjunct faculty in History, American University
Date/Time: April 28, 4 – 5:30 PM
Location: Ohr Kodesh Congregation, Chevy Chase, MD
Learn more and pre-register here.
Bordeaux, as most Americans know, is one of the most important wine regions of France. Less known is the fact that for several centuries, Bordeaux and its region hosted a vibrant Jewish community, which made numerous contributions to the history of France. Join us to retrace the history of this unique Jewish community across four centuries. In this talk, Dr. Gudefin will present both a local and a global story — an exploration of a French Jewish community that developed unique traditions, rooted in the culture and the landscape of Southern France, while remaining connected to the Jewish diaspora spanning several continents.
This event is free and open to the public.

MentorPrize recruits mentors for various non-profit organizations in the Washington region that serve a broad range of constituencies — from at-risk-youth to immigrants struggling to gain a foothold in the job market. It is aggressively working to identify quality mentors for its partners, which is why it is reaching out to the Bender JCC community.
Research confirms that mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on mentees in a variety of personal, academic and professionals situations. The benefits extend to the mentors as well — improving their morale, communication skills, and emotional well-being. But finding a meaningful mentoring opportunity can be daunting given the region’s dizzying array of programs. MentorPrize has taken the time to assess dozens of these programs. It is well-positioned to match you with a program that suits your interests and takes into account your time constraints and preferred location.
