Morris Bart, Sr. Lecture Series at the J

We hope you will join us for our monthly lecture series at the Uptown JCC, which has been made possible through a generous donation from Morris Bart. Now in its fourth season, the Morris Bart, Sr. Lecture Series at the J features local experts in the fields of history, architecture, religion, politics, food, music, theater, and so much more.

Typically held on the second Monday of the month, each one-hour lecture is preceded by a catered, kosher lunch. There is no charge for JCC members. However, there is a $10 fee for non-members. An RSVP is required to Rachel Ruth at 504.897.0143 or 
rachel@nojcc.org.
