Jewish Culture Shuk returns: love, violence, shellfish and more

The Jewish Culture Shuk (Hebrew for “marketplace”) returns Sunday, Nov. 15 with an evening of adult education classes taught by more than a dozen local rabbis and educators.

Participants select two one-hour classes (all classes are offered in both sessions). Online registration is available through Nov. 12 at jfsa.org. Walk in registration begins at 6:15 p.m., with the first class at 7 p.m. and the second at 8:15 p.m., followed by coffee and dessert from 9:15 -10 p.m. The cost is $10.
