Where the Wild Coffee Grows: The Untold Story of Coffee from the Cloud Forests of Ethiopia to Your Cup - 92Y
November 13, 2017 - New York

Award-winning author Jeff Koehler tells us the fascinating story of coffee, one of the world's largest and most valuable commodities. From its origins in the cloud forests of Ethiopia to its spectacular journey to virtually every corner of every town around the world, Koehler brings us behind the scenes of its isolated development and the current challenges facing the industry with disease and climate change battering production in Latin America, where 85 percent of Arabica grows. "The forests around Kafa are not important just because they are the origin of a drink that means so much to so many," writes Koehler. "They are important because deep in their shady understory lies a key to saving the faltering coffee industry. They hold not just the past but also the future of coffee." There will be a guided tasting of coffee with pour overs for 3 different coffees courtesy of Caffe Vita Coffe Roasting Co. and a book signing following this event.

NHL's Sean Avery in Conversation with Actor/Director Peter Berg - 92Y
November 13, 2017 - New York

Hockey's most provocative player, Sean Avery, pulls no punches as he talks about life on and off the rink with director/writer/actor Peter Berg. Former NHL forward Sean Avery took a cheap shot as often as a slap shot during his 13 season career in the league. Playing for four of the NHL's most high profile teams, he alienated fellow players indiscriminately during his stints in Detroit, Los Angeles, Dallas, and, ultimately, the New York Rangers. While a Ranger, Avery's antics during a now infamous game with the New Jersey Devils were deemed so unsportsmanlike they resulted - overnight - in a new NHL rule, now informally called the Avery Rule. Hot on the ice, it turns out Avery is pretty cool off it. In the off-season, he traded his blades for shades, turned his interest in fashion into an internship at Vogue, became an advertising executive, opened a restaurant with Henrik Lundquist, and more. He writes about it all in ICE CAPADES: A Memoir of Fast Living and Tough Hockey – a revealing and candid look at the inside world of professional hockey, his surprising life off the ice, and his political activism, which includes – hold onto your jerseys – support for anti-bullying campaig...

Islam: An American Religion - Albertine
November 13, 2017 - New York

A Conversation with Nadia Marzouki Nadia Marzouki and Rosemary R. Corbett will discuss Marzouki's Islam: An American Religion (Columbia University Press, 2017), in which she demonstrates how Islam as formed in the United States to become an American religion in a double sense?first through the strategies of recognition adopted by Muslims and second through the performance of Islam as a faith. Nadia Marzouki also investigates how Islam has become so contentious in American politics. Focusing on the period from 2008 to 2013, she revisits the uproar over the construction of mosques, legal disputes around the prohibition of Islamic law, and the overseas promotion of religious freedom. She argues that public controversies over Islam in the United States primarily reflect the American public's profound divisions and ambivalence toward freedom of speech and the legitimacy of liberal secular democracy.

Demagogues, Madmen and Cowards: the Failure of Leaders in the Book of Judges - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 13, 2017 - New York

God chooses Israel's leaders, who are often flawed in significant ways: one is found cowering in a cave when he is called to action, another slaughters his 70 brothers before being crowned and a third doesn't know his own strength and resists efforts from all sides to control his impulses. The cumulative effect of these and other chieftains is a total breakdown of the Israelite social fabric and a transformation of Israel's ruling paradigm. Together, we will explore these models for lessons they offer for our own times.

Anointed to Fail: Dysfunctional Models of Leadership in the Israelite Monarchy - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 13, 2017 - New York

God resists establishing a monarchy in Israel, and the performance of human kings proves God right. One king rapes the wife of his courtier and looks the other way when his firstborn son rapes his own sister. Another seeks the life of a rival rather than battle the enemies that surround Israel in war. A third acts on judgment so poor that it splits the kingdom in two. This course explores the devastating impact of human failings writ large and how the nation pays the price.

Judaism's Ethics Committee - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 13, 2017 - New York

For the majority of us, ethics and human relations are the most relevant parts of Jewish philosophy and law—the ones deserving utmost attention. But many of our greatest scholars have viewed ethics as inextricably linked to cosmology, theology, Kabbalah, psychology and Jewish law. In this course, we will examine the role of ethics in Judaism through the lens of three highly influential thinkers whose work spans the 16th through 20th centuries: the Maharal of Prague, a towering theologian; Nachman of Breslov, a dynamic Chasidic master; and Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, perhaps the greatest philosopher of Halacha of the Modern Era. Together, we will learn how each thinker contextualized ethics within his own life and thought system.

Diaspora' in Jewish History and Thought - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 13, 2017 - New York

Many Jewish historians in the Zionist age have considered Jewish history to have a single outcome—and Jewish ideology to hold a single opinion: the misery of "exile" ends only with a Jewish return home to Zion. But Jews have lived in diasporas for more than 2,500 years and have not only suffered in them but have also created, flourished and even thrived. Some Jewish ideologies reflect this far more balanced experience. In this course, we recover them — and the other side of Jewish history and thought — in which diaspora competes with Zion, allowing for the growth of Torah even when Jews are distant from their original home.

Have I Got a Story for You: Exploring the Jewish Oral Tradition - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 14, 2017 - New York

Although Jews are often called the People of the Book, the People of the Spoken Word would be equally apt. Throughout the centuries, we have transmitted memories, wisdom, values, customs, traditions and history through our stories, not only from our sacred literature but also from the oral tradition. Together with the Written Torah and Oral Law, the oral tradition has been central to the reinforcement and transmission of Jewish values and folk wisdom from generation to generation. Our stories are our treasured legacy. In this class, we will explore the need for folktales, the types of tales in our heritage, the dominant values and themes of these stories and, above all, the imperative to keep telling these tales. We will also discover what makes a story Jewish and how folktales continue to connect to our lives.

American Priorities in the Middle East - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center

In sequence, the classes will address the birth of the state of Israel, oil and investment, the promotion of democracy, counterterrorism, nonproliferation—and Israel's future. Among the liveliest discussions on the agenda: How can American policies be reformulated to advance our interests and values more successfully?

Alan Dershowitz with Jeffrey Toobin - 92nd Street Y
November 14, 2017 - New York

Can we defend President Trump's civil liberties without defending his policies? In today's era of "Lock her up!" and "Lock him up!", when we disagree with a politician, it's not enough for them just to be wrong — they must be criminals too. But this prosecutorial spirit is eroding our democracy, says renowned legal scholar Alan Dershowitz in his passionate new book, Trumped Up. Even if we're vehemently opposed to the Trump administration or to his opponents on the left, what if we start thinking about the other side not as crooks, but as fellow Americans with whom we need to find common ground?

Linda Greenhouse in Conversation with Anna Quindlen - 92Y
November 15, 2017 - New York

Linda Greenhouse, the New York Times contributing op-ed writer, joins fellow Pulitzer Prize winner Anna Quindlen for a deep dive into this moment of extraordinary transition in American journalism. Just a few years ago, writes Greenhouse in her new book, Just a Journalist, the mainstream press was wrestling with whether labeling waterboarding as torture violated important norms of neutrality and objectivity. Now, major American newspapers regularly call the president of the United States a liar. Clearly, something has changed as the old rules of "balance" and "two sides to every story" have lost their grip. Is the change for the better? Will it last? For decades, Linda Greenhouse covered the US Supreme Court for The New York Times. Get her perspective on these issues and more, as she and Quindlen explore questions about the role journalists can and should play as citizens, even as participants, in the world around them. A book signing will follow.

Who Authored the Bible? the Historical Perspective - The Temple Emanu-El Skirball Center
November 15, 2017 - New York

When we're studying the Bible, one question that invariably arises is who wrote the Five Books and how were they compiled? Rabbinic commentators affirm that Moses was the author and explain the many repetitions, inconsistencies and contradictions with midrash (interpretive explanations). Modern scholars respond with a critical, historical reading of the text, identifying four primary sources or author schools—E, J, P and D. The composition, today's scholars posit, was gradual, with various segments being written in response to historical circumstances and changing theological world views. In this class, we will unravel and examine these strands with a view toward understanding how a critical reading—one that recognizes the multiplicity of voices inherent in the text's construction—enriches our insight into the Bible's profound and compelling messages, without undermining its authority or divinity.

Johnny Mercer Sings Johnny Mercer - 92nd Street Y
Through November 29, 2017 - Upper East Side

Will Friedwald, feature writer for The Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair and the author of nine books on popular music, presents curated video clips from his extensive vintage collection to illustrate the great artistry of the performers and composers of the American Songbook. The presentations will be driven both by a profundity of rare and fascinating video footage, nearly all of which hasn't been seen publicly in decades (not available on home video or YouTube) and his own incisive commentary. Everyone knows Johnny Mercer's songs: "Come Rain or Come Shine," "Skylark" and "Moon River," but how many people know that he was also a great singer, especially of his own lyrics. In the 1950s and '60s, Mercer was a frequent presence on live television, and for this retrospective, we're culling his appearances from a wide range of vintage variety shows, featuring duets with such worthy constituents as Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Margaret Whiting and Nat King Cole.

Through December 05, 2017 - New York

The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the American Academy in Rome, and curated by Christian Caliandro.

Carl D'Alvia, Jackie Saccoccio, Nari Ward, Giuseppe Stampone, Eugenio Tibaldi e Tomaso De Luca - All Rome Prize Fellows and ASV Fellows of the institution in recent years - are committed, through their research, in the construction of works that reflect this philosophy.

Sol LeWitt: Wall Drawing #370 - The Met
Through January 28, 2018 - New York

Sol LeWitt (American, 1928–2007) executed drawings by hand throughout his life; in 1968 he extricated his work from the confines of the frame and transferred it directly to the wall. The wall compositions were designed for limited duration and maximum flexibility within a broad range of architectural settings. Initially executed by drafters, these works in their finished state were most often slated for destruction. A seminal practitioner of Conceptual Art, LeWitt emphasized the creative idea that generates a work of art, as opposed to the work's material existence. "For each work of art that becomes physical," he wrote, "there are many variations that do not." Sol LeWitt's 1982 Wall Drawing #370: Ten Geometric Figures (including right triangle, cross, X, diamond) with three-inch parallel bands of lines in two directions was installed at the Museum over a period of four weeks. The drawing will be on view in its complete state through January 28, 2018, when it will be painted over.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer - Metropolitan Museum of Art
Through February 12, 2018 - New York

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564), a towering genius in the history of Western art, will be the subject of this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition. During his long life, Michelangelo was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. For his mastery of drawing, design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, he was called Il Divino ("the divine one") by his contemporaries. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today. This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, as well as a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context.
