HAZAK: Lunch & Learn: "Lesser Known Jewish American Heroes in History"

Conference Room

July 16, 2019: Our Lunch and Learn session will celebrate American history, exploring "Lesser Known Jewish American Heroes in History."

Have you ever heard of Col. Mickey Marcus? Lillian Wald? Jean Lafitte? Or Admiral Uriah Levy? How about Edward G. Robinson (yes, that Edward G.Robinson!) or Rabbi David Einhorn? Some surprises are in store as we dig into their stories.

As always, bring a friend and bring your lunch. Parve dessert and coffee and tea will be provided. For more information, contact Sandy Walter at: SMWalter [at] rmac [dot] com or 301-980-5516 


On Tuesday September 17 at 2:00 PM we will be calling Ohr Kodesh members over 90 years of age to wish them "Shanah Tovah!"   This was a huge success last year, and we hope to repeat it every year!
On Thursday, October 17 at 7:30 PM, HAZAK will meet at the Sukkah/home of Sandy & John Walter.  The session will feature a conversation with Hagar Netser, our Ohr Kodesh Sh’lichah.

On Friday, November 8 or 15 (TBD), Hazak will sponsor its annual inter-generational Shabbat Dinner honoring Ohr Kodesh veterans. This program is a highlight every year.

In December HAZAK will offer a two-part program: "The Best Chanukah Gift Ever".
Part 1 (Tuesday, Dec. 10) will be Inter-generational story telling
Part 2 (Tuesday, Dec. 17 @ 11:30 AM), will offer a workshop on techniques to tell your family
story to your family

Thursday, February 13 will focus on the Kosher DC Restaurant scene! There are lots of new options you will want to “taste.”

Tuesday, March 10 program will discuss "The History of Jews in Baseball".

Monday, April 20 the Lunch and Learn topic will be the Jewish calendar, its mechanics and history.

Thursday, May 7 we will discuss the new marijuana laws in Maryland.

We hope you will be a part of our year ahead!! Let us know if you have program ideas and want to actively participate in Hazak. You may want to join the Hazak Advisory Group. There is a place for you at our table!
