J Street, a liberal advocacy organization, presents itself to be pro- Israel and pro- peace. Its message that Israel must do more to achieve peace has created a great deal of controversy. The J Street Challenge is a critical look at the group. Watch the movie and join us for a post screening discussion with local pro-Israel advocates.

“Thinking like a scientist” means believing that there are answers to your questions, and that you are capable of pursuing those answers. Using neuroscience, Dr. Corlew will discuss why an understanding of STEM is increasingly important and empowering, and more accessible than ever
before. She’ll use your own brain to show you why science needs your participation.
Speaker: Rebekah Corlew, Ph.D. In addition to her research, Dr. Corlew has always been passionate about increasing the public’s
understanding of neuroscience and mentoring future scientists. Dr. Corlew holds a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has worked as a research scientist for over six years at Duke University and Max Planck Florida investigating how the brain forms connections during very early development. Dr. Corlew’s presentation is followed by an open Q&A session, providing everyone with a unique opportunity to meet Dr. Corlew in person.
