“We put together a new adult learning series entitled ‘Spring Mini-mester’ expressly designed to be stimulating, informative, enriching and enjoyable,” said Linda Hershman, KleinLife’s coordinator of Lifelong Learning programs, which are run in coordination with the center’s Active Adult Life Department. “The series has been meticulously designed to enliven and engage the minds, bodies and spirits of active adults.”

“In addition, we’ve pulled together an outstanding faculty of professional educators and skilled professionals in their respective fields,” she added. “I’m certain our participants will enjoy interacting with each and every one of them.”

The program will kick off with “Jewish Artists of Note” on Monday, April 29 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., followed by the “Music of Steven Sondheim” from 1 to 2 p.m. and “Current Events” (beginning May 6) from 1 to 2 p.m.
