Funds Support Organizations In Six Communities, Including The Jewish Community Center Of Greater New Haven
Connecticut Humanities has announced that organizations in six communities will share more than $8,200 in grant money to support humanities-based programming. The money will help fund events ranging from a lecture series on American presidential elections to a discussion about a Connecticut man who was a little-known early father of baseball.
The Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven in Woodbridge received a $1,500 grant to support “A Taste of Honey: A Night of Community Learningˮ on January 30. The program will bring together speakers from throughout the Northeast to discuss Jewish-related issues around politics, health, science, spirituality, arts, culture, history, literature and more. There will be two featured speakers: Dr. Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman, from New York’s Hebrew Union College, who will present “Limits, Truth and Meaning: The Anxious Search for Meaning in our Time;ˮ and Dr. Yehuda Kurtzer, who will lead a discussion entitled “On Jewish Leadership in a Time of Crisisˮ. Tickets are $12 for seniors and students; $18 for others.
