The University of Colorado Boulder’s Program in Jewish Studies and the Boulder JCC invite community members of all backgrounds to a Jeffersonian Dessert Party, featuring desserts, cordials, coffee, and shared conversation with CU Boulder Jewish Studies faculty members.

Prior to the event, attendees will receive a discussion question from the presenter as well as a pre-circulated reading, podcast, or other media to explore and will be asked to prepare some discussion questions and thoughts to share at the event.
