October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

CABS: Amy Fish “I Wanted Fries with That: How to Ask for What you Want and Get What you Need”

November 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Click here to register!  Jews expe­ri­ence injus­tices large and small — the restau­rant botch­ing our bagel shmear, car deal­er­ship not return­ing our calls, or find­ing bacon in the syn­a­gogue fridge. Often, we suf­fer in silence for fear of offend­ing any­one, or we kvetch too loud­ly and risk being ignored. In I Want­ed Fries with That, Jew­ish author Amy Fish encour­ages read­ers to com­plain effec­tive­ly. In her career as a uni­ver­si­ty ombuds­man, Fish has dealt with thou­sands of com­plaints — some triv­ial some seri­ous — and gained action­able insights…

CABS: Yousef Bashir “Words of My Father: Love and Pain in Palestine”

November 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Click here to register!  When the soccer-mad Yousef was eleven, the Second Intifada exploded. First came the shooting, then the occupation. Ordered to leave their family home, Yousef’s father refused, even when the Israeli soldiers moved in, seizing the top two floors. For five long years, three generations of the Bashir family were virtual prisoners in their own home. Despite this, Yousef’s father—a respected Palestinian schoolteacher whose belief in coexisting peacefully with his Israeli neighbors was unshakeable—treated the soldiers as…
