2017 Bobbi and Vic Samuels Center for Jewish Living & Learning Spring Scholars Series
Jewish Ethics, Local Narratives
Our annual spring series provides a Jewish lens to some of the most pressing issues in the Houston community.
Each session will explore a topic of social and political relevance through a panel discussion that incorporates Jewish, Houston and personal perspectives.
