On three consecutive Thursdays, The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires invites you to attend a series of free forums entitled "Moments To Remember" featuring Dick Macht, a educator, writer and raconteur who will feature excerpts from his autobiographical short stories. The discussions take place at 10:45 am on January 23rd, January 30th and February 6th as part of a "connecting with community" series at Knesset Israel located at 16 Colt Road in Pittsfield, Massachusetts.

Dick Macht describes his stories are filled with love, laughter, kindness, compassion, understanding, joy, sorrow and happiness as the theme of these forums is about "living and loving fully". He has received a B-A from Ivy league Dartmouth College, an M-A from Duke University and a P-H-D from Indiana University as he is also a teacher of Yiddish, Israeli and German literature. His other specialties include lectures nationwide at synagogues, elder hostels, adult summer camps and continuous education programs. Let's not forget he is also an expert in the subject of Jewish mysticism.
