MoVeRs: Soccer and Political Powerhouses

Two terrific MoVeRs programs this week, including Tuesday night’s “Out of the Classroom and Onto the Field:  Jews & Soccer” at Catacombs Bar (Hotel Boulderado), co-sponsored by SoulFood and the Program in Jewish Studies at CU.

Thurday night is “Political Powerhouses: Three Women Who Did Not Stand Idly By.”  Join CU Professor Zilla Goodman for a discussion that examines the lives of three remarkable Jewish mavericks: Henrietta Szold, Manya Shochat and Rosa Luxemburg. Although undeniably different in so many respects, these political powerhouses were figures who contributed much to the political and social thought in the first half of the 20th century in Israel and Europe.  7 PM at the Dennis Small Cultural Center, University Memorial Center, 4th Floor, University of Colorado at Boulder.  Co-sponsored by Hadassah and the Program in Jewish Studies at CU.  Free and open to the public.
