“Communication: Its Art and Soul”
A new six weeks course by the Rohr Jewish Learning Institute starting on Tuesday 23rd January 2018 at 8pm.

In Communication: Its Art and Soul, we contrast Jewish thought with scientific discovery to unearth the essence of communication and how to utilize its powers to better ourselves, our relationships, and all of society
