MORRIS BART SR., LECTURE SERIES AT THE J

Created in 2013, the Morris Bart, Sr. Lecture Series features local experts in the fields of history, architecture, religion, politics, food, music, theater, and so much more. This monthly lecture series is generously funded by Morris Bart.

Typically held on the second Monday of the month at the Uptown JCC from 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM, each one-hour lecture is preceded by a catered, kosher lunch. Due to COVID-19, all lectures are now held virtually.
