CANCELLED: The Little Gate Crasher: The Life and Photos of Mace Bugen
March 18 • 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled.
Mace Bugen might have been an achondroplastic dwarf—forty-three inches tall with an average-sized head and a torso set on small, twisted legs—but that didn’t mean he was an idiot or a pushover. In truth, he was smarter than most; over the years, he learned to effectively turn what society in those days called a handicap into a powerful tool he could use to his advantage.

A History of Judaism
April 15 • 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM • RSVP HERE!
Judaism is one of the oldest religions in the world, and it has preserved its distinctive identity despite the extraordinarily diverse forms and beliefs it has embodied over the course of more than three millennia. A History of Judaism provides the first truly comprehensive look in one volume at how this great religion came to be, how it has evolved from one age to the next, and how its various strains, sects, and traditions have related to each other. Author Martin Goodman will explore Judaism’s origins in the polytheistic world of the second and first millennia BCE to the temple cult at the time of Jesus. Read more about Goodman HERE!
