    Tuesday, May 28th 8:00p to 9:15p
    Are you sick of the current national crisis illustrated by political discussions full of contempt? Would you like to be able to do something about it? If so, please join Judd Kessler in three evening classes digging into the depth of two books: The Righteous Mind by Prof. Jonathan Haidt and Love Your Enemies by Arthur Brooks. This interactive class will have class members preparing brief presentations on “moral values” underlying various political positions and will involve more interchange than lecture. Names of specific political figures will be avoided.
