For our Sunday morning worship service on 2018 September 16, Mountain Light Unitarian Universalist Church (MLUUC) in Ellijay is pleased to have a member of our congregation, Ed Wolpert, as our speaker.
His topic is “Israel in 2018: It’s Complicated”. The presentation will focus on three conflicts: Ultraorthodox Jews and other Jews, Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs, and Israelis and Palestinians
Dr. Wolpert started his teaching career in New York City in 1962. He received a doctorate in education from the University of Kansas in 1970 and has had a significant career in college teaching and administration. In 1997, he also received a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from Georgia College and State University and presents himself as an alumnus of GC&SU and a professor as well as a dean emeritus. He had a significant role in the development of the field-based undergraduate cohort programs and the field-based Master of Arts in Teaching program.
