Lexington Institute of Jewish Studies

Founded in the early 1980s, the Lexington Institute of Jewish Studies (LIJS) is the fruit of a longstanding collaboration between the Adult Education committees of Temple Isaiah and Temple Emunah. The LIJS provides classes in Jewish history, the Bible, sacred Jewish text and Judaic culture and is open to the entire community regardless of affiliation.

The Fragility of Democracy: The Rise of the Nazis and Its Lessons for the Jewish Community Today

Wednesdays starting October 19
8:00 pm - 9:30 pm, Zoom

How does a democratic society evolve into a dictatorship? What are the choices individuals make that enable this to happen? This course will explore how people who were thought to be the moral barometers of society became participants in dictatorship and genocide and how we can work to prevent this from happening again. The class will be taught by Jan Darsa, former Director of Jewish Education at Facing History and Ourselves for over 20 years.
