Holocaust: Victims and Oppressors
The rise of Nazism remains one of the most studied phenomena in modern history. This course will examine the causes and consequences of the Holocaust. Events of the Holocaust will be examined, from the rise of Hitler to power, through the adoption of anti-Semitic laws and the implementation of the Final Solution. The Nazis used the tools of modern civilization (technology, bureaucracy and science) to persecute, alienate, transport and finally murder millions. Learning objectives are: ability to identify and analyze the causes leading up to the Holocaust; and the historical facts of the Holocaust; ability to identify, explain and discuss major issues, events and personalities during the period under study; appreciation of the universal lessons of the Holocaust; the ability to look past stereotyping and ignorance to ascertain the truth about the definition of a minority group. The class will be taught by Rick Harkavy, who is currently the rabbi of Bet Chaverim, a synagogue located in Des Moines. Previously Rabbi Harkavy was the executive director for a Holocaust Museum in New York.

The Art of Aging Well- A 3 Hour Workshop for Seniors
This interactive workshop will provide guidelines, encouragement, and positive support to our senior community in learning how to thrive in later years. Aging well does not mean we will not change physically. It means we will develop and grow our inner worlds, seizing each moment and living it to the best of our abilities. We will learn the importance of vitality, purpose, and personal growth as we move into later phases of life. We will explore many of the questions people ask themselves as they grow older, such as: (1) Who am I when I'm not doing what I used to do, (2) What is my purpose in life, (3) How can I make a contribution to society, (4) What can I do to still feel valued? The ever-present danger of old age is that we may start acting old. Instead, we must learn to embrace our many years of experience and utilize them to continue to enrich our lives and to enrich the lives of others. It is the quality of what we think and what we express that makes us valuable members of society, not how fast or busy we are. Older years can be extraordinary years-active, mentally alert, and socially significant. Each moment is not to be lived casually now, but to be savored and appreciated in a whole new way. CEUs: 0.3.
