  1. Fighting Hate From Home | Fighting Racism as a Multiracial Jewish Community

    Please join us for a timely discussion on fighting racism as a multiracial Jewish Community with Ilana Kaufman, Executive Director of the Jews of Color Field Building Initiative, Gamal Palmer, Schusterman Fellow 2019, Ginna Green, political consultant and strategist, and ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

    Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed horrifying acts of police brutality targeting Black lives, coupled with insidious racism that continues to underpin our country’s systems and structures, all on the heels of a global pandemic. But let’s be clear – the violent racism we are witnessing now has always existed in this country. This moment and many before it demand dedicated focus and resources to actively address and fight racism. Listen in to hear from our panel of experts and influencers on Jewish diversity, racial equity, and the role of Jewish leaders, institutions, and communities in serving and supporting our entire multiracial community. Hear what that means in particular for Black community members and why we must unequivocally say Black Lives Matter, and Black Jewish Lives Matter.

  2. Intermittent Fasting: Transformational Technique | Cynthia Thurlow | TEDxGreenville

    NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice and consult a medical professional before adopting an intermittent fasting regiment. This talk only represents the speaker’s views on fasting, diet, and health. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here: http://storage.ted.com/tedx/manuals/tedx_content_guidelines.pdf

  3. My courtroom battle with a Holocaust denier | Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt | TEDxSkoll

    Historian Deborah Lipstadt spent years researching Holocaust deniers for one of her books, arguing that their racism, anti-Semitism, and prejudice had been disguised as rational discourse. But she never thought she would have to face one of them in court. Her talk tells the incredible story of her six year battle to defend the existence of the Holocaust in a courtroom, and proposes solutions for how to fight for the truth in a new era marked by “alternative facts.”

    Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt is Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish & Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. Her most recent book, Holocaust: An American Understanding (Rutgers, 2016) explores how America has understood and interpreted the Holocaust since 1945. Her previous book, The Eichmann Trial (Schocken/Nextbook 2011) published in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Eichmann trial, was called by Publisher’s Weekly, “a penetrating and authoritative dissection of a landmark case and its after effects.”

    She has held and currently holds a Presidential appointment to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council (from Presidents Clinton and Obama) and was asked by President George W. Bush to represent the White House at the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. At the US Holocaust Museum Lipstadt chairs the Committ…

  5. Why does it take so long to grow up today? | Jeffrey Jensen Arnett | TEDxPSU

    It takes so long to “grow up” today—finish education, find a stable job, get married—that it makes sense to think of it as a new life stage, emerging adulthood, in between adolescence and young adulthood. But why? Four revolutions of the 1960s and ‘70s explain it: the Technology Revolution that changed the economy and led to more education for longer than ever before; the Sexual Revolution that made it possible to have a sex life without marriage; the Women’s Movement that gave women an incentive to postpone marriage to pursue a career; and the Youth Movement, which gave adulthood a bad name. Older adults grumble that it takes “too long” to grow up today, but most people will be better partners and parents if they wait longer, so why not use most of the twenties for adventures you’ll never be able to have again?

    Jeffrey Arnett is a professor in Clark University’s Department of Psychology in Massachusetts. Starting with his Bachelor in Science in Psychology at Michigan State University, Arnett’s education continued with a Masters and a Ph. D. from the University of Virginia. Arnett has held a lot of professorships and research positions with a variety of universities across the United States. Arnett coined the phrase emerging adulthood, the phase of life between adolescence and full-fledged adul…

  6. No Sex Marriage – Masturbation, Loneliness, Cheating and Shame | Maureen McGrath | TEDxStanleyPark

    Love? Marriage? Sex? Can a married couple have all three? Perhaps it’s unrealistic since so many marriages end in divorce today. Why is that? One reason might be that a reported 20% of all marriages are sexless and that number is rising. Why have we lost the lust in our marriages? Is it technology, is it trust? More importantly, how can we “get back at it” in our marriages today?

    Maureen McGrath - nursetalk@hotmail.com - hosts the Sunday Night Sex Show on News Talk 980 CKNW. She is a Registered Nurse, Sex Educator and author of “Sex & Health".

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

  7. The way we think about charity is dead wrong | Dan Pallotta

    Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta calls out the double standard that drives our broken relationship to charities. Too many nonprofits, he says, are rewarded for how little they spend — not for what they get done. Instead of equating frugality with morality, he asks us to start rewarding charities for their big goals and big accomplishments (even if that comes with big expenses). In this bold talk, he says: Let’s change the way we think about changing the world.

  9. JFN 2017: Yehuda Kurtzer, April Baskin, Elie Kaunfer, Sarah Rueven

    In the 21st century, the Jewish world is undergoing three transformations that are changing who we are as a people: an ideological transformation; a transformation of our sense of community; a transformation of the organizational structure of the community. The way in which we understand and deal with these changes will determine the shape and character of the Jewish world in the decades ahead. Yehuda Kurtzer, president of the Shalom Hartman Institute, speaks to these transformations and converses with April Baskin, Elie Kaunfer and Sarah Rueven, as representatives of the next generation that are living and leading through these seismic changes.
