004 Coptic Christianity: Then & Now PHS NEW!
Reverend Father Michael Sorial,
ordained priest in the
Coptic Orthodox Church
Tues., 6:30–7:30 pm, March 3, 2 sessions
$35

The Coptic Orthodox Christians – the indigenous people of Egypt and the ancestors of the Ancient Egyptians – played a formative role in the early days of the Christian Church. A once homogeneous community that was relatively unknown to most people in the world, the Coptic Christians have spread all over the world. Beyond the likes of better known Copts such as Mina Massaoud (Alladin), Ramy Malek (Mr. Robot), and Botros Botros-Ghali (United Nations Secretary General from 1992 to 1996), Coptic Christians often display a unique spirituality shaped by their experience as an occupied people over the past 2,000 years. Come learn about the largest religious minority in the Middle East. Topics will include the origin and basic tenets of the Coptic faith, history of persecution, relationship to the Catholic faith and other Orthodox Christian faiths, fasts and festivals, how priests are chosen and educated, Coptic art, the Coptic diaspora, and the Coptic Church in dealing with modernity.

005 Truth AND Consequences—A Conversation
about How DNA Testing Can Change Who We
Think We Are! PHS NEW!
Donna M. Ritz, LCSW with
private practice in Princeton
and Louise Dewar, Ph.D., educator
and family ancestry researcher
for over 40 years
Thurs., 6:30–8:30 pm, March 26, 1 session
$40


 

With the recent availability of consumer DNA testing kits, many people are submitting samples in the hopes of obtaining valuable, sometimes vital, information about their family, their heritage, and their genetic lineage. Often people embark on this journey casually, without much thought to the possible, often unpredictable, outcomes. Genealogical websites like Ancestry and FamilySearch give us the tools to find distant members of our family tree who may or may not want to be identified. The results of both DNA and genealogical research can be sources of fulfillment and joy; but they can also be minefields of unwelcome information and shocking news. Vital records and DNA results may provide you with the “truth”, but knowing the truth does not prepare you for the consequences of that knowledge. Our discussion will explore some of the questions you might consider before embarking on your personal journey of identity.

007 Food Fights: Eating and Controversy in
American History PHS NEW!
Michael Kideckel,, educator, PhD
Thurs., 7:00–8:30 pm, Feb. 27, 6 sessions
(No class March 19, April 9)
$105


 

Since before they started thinking of themselves as Americans, people in the United States have worried about their food: that it was unethical, unnatural, or not local enough. These concerns have changed over time, but they have consistently driven Americans to test varied solutions, from alternative food systems to utopian communities. Battles about what to eat have been vicious, often standing in for debates about race, gender, class, and power. This class will mix lectures with interactive discussions and examinations of primary sources to explore historical food fights. Participants will learn the evolution of and power dynamics behind words such as “processing,” “local,” and “natural,” and concepts including tradition and authenticity. The class will consider how industrialists, reformers, and legislators fought for the authority to tell people how to eat and live.

008 A Frank Lloyd Wright Journey NEW!
$375 double occupancy per person
$445 single occupancy

The Princeton Adult School celebrates its 80th year with a spectacular trip to Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpieces, Saturday and Sunday, April 25 and 26, 2020.

Your trip begins with a Saturday afternoon tour of Fallingwater, Millrun PA. The genius of Frank Lloyd Wright to physically and spiritually embrace the natural world is captured in the daring and innovative architecture set among the forest landscape of Bear Run. A Unesco World Heritage Site, Fallingwater is a house designed in 1935 by renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959). The house was designed as a private residence and weekend home for the family of Pittsburgh department store owner, Edgar J. Kaufmann, Sr. Fallingwater is one of Wright’s most widely acclaimed works and best exemplifies his philosophy of organic architecture: the harmonious union of art and nature.

Dinner on Saturday night will be held at the historic Eastwood Inn, Ligonier, PA. The restaurant began its life in the 1880s as a stage coach stop, became a speakeasy during prohibition (with a brothel next door) and retains its secrecy: there’s no sign, you have to buzz to be let in!

Our next stop will be on Sunday morning for a tour of Kentuck Knob, Dunbar, PA. Designed on a hexagonal module, Kentuck Knob is a small, one story Usonian (meaning affordable for the average American). It was a signature design of Frank Lloyd Wright. Both dramatic and serene, the house, situated just below the crest of the hill, appears almost part of the mountain itself and stands 2,050 feet above sea level. As an open floor plan, cantilevered overhangs and great expanses of glass effortlessly integrate the inside with the outside.

And, a stop on the way home to visit the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, PA. Here you will be able to experience The Tower of Voices. This 93 feet tall musical instrument serves as both a visual and audible reminder of the heroism of the forty passengers and crew of United Flight 93.

The fee for this special event includes:
• Chartered bus to/from Princeton
• All meals
• Tickets to all events/tours
• Room accommodations at the Ramada Inn, Ligonier, PA
• All gratuities

Additional notes:
1. You are encouraged to register immediately! This class/trip will fill very quickly and enrollment is limited to one 36-passenger bus. We will fill the class on a first-come/first-served basis from MAIL REGISTRATIONS ONLY. You may use the registration form downloaded from the website, but there will be no online registration. The SENIOR discount does not apply to this class.
2. Rooms will be assigned on a first-come/first-served basis.
3. Refunds: For this special event, all buses, hotels, meals, and tickets will be paid for well in advance. If you must withdraw, you must submit your request in writing by March 15th. After that date, regrettably, we won’t be able to make any refunds unless we can find someone on the wait list to take your place.

Carnegie Hall Comes to Princeton: Two Young Artists of Acclaim and Their Original Program of Banned Music, Now Performed.

A pre-performance opportunity is being presented in Princeton when Princeton Adult School and Joy in Singing NYC bring together the winners of The Joy in Singing International Art Song competition GREGORY FELDMANN, baritone, and NATHANIEL LANASA, collaborative pianist, for an afternoon of song and conversation in a private setting.

Gregory Feldmann and Nathaniel LaNasa will be making their Carnegie Hall debut with this historically important and vivid program that we can enjoy here in Princeton due to the generosity of the artists and our hosts.

“Degenerate Music” is a reimagining of the “Entartete Musik” concert given by the Nazi regime in 1938 to denigrate the artists deemed unacceptable to the Third Reich. By contrast, baritone Gregory Feldmann and pianist Nathaniel LaNasa revived and celebrate the songs of composers whose compositions were banned. Included are works, based on ancient eastern texts, of Pavel Hass and Viktor Ullmann (both died in concentration camps) and sensual (labeled “debauched”) songs by Franz Schreker and other exiled composers Alexaner Zemlinsky, Erick Korngold and the scathing critiques of contemporary society by Kurt Weil. For further details, please visit the class details section on our website. See the artist’s website at http://www.gregoryfeldmannbaritone.com

NOTE: This is a private residence in Princeton. The location and parking information for will be emailed to registrants about a week prior to the start of the event. Feel free to call the office at 609-683-1101 with any questions. Early registration is suggested as seating is limited for the private and special event.

017 Rome of Caesars - Rome of Popes PHS NEW!
Elena Livingstone-Ross, teacher of art history
and European history
Thurs., 7:00–8:30 pm, Feb. 27, 6 sessions
$110

In the early 16th century, it was said that under Pope Alexander VI (Borgia), Rome belonged to the goddess Venus, under Julius II (della Rovere), to the god Mars, and under Leo X (Medici), to Minerva. Alexander was a sensual voluptuary; Julius exhausted and demoralized Italy by wars, and under Leo, men of genius flocked to Rome in an extraordinary concentration of talent. These popes were also men of cruelty, avarice, injustice and duplicity. Yet, as during the time of Emperor Augustus and his successors, who prided themselves on similar character traits, the popes initiated an urban renewal the likes of which had rarely been seen, with Rome assuming the magnificence it hadn’t boasted since the days of the Caesars. Along the way, many a Nero, a Caligula and a Commodus also sat on the papal throne. But above all, Sex, War and Splendor were the Holy Trinity of Rome eternal.

Outsider Art originated as the art of the insane and self-taught and existed outside the realm of art history. Much of this art is based on visions and messages from God and does not require recognition by society. The self-taught artist is responding to the bidding of an inner necessity to create. We will trace its beginnings, its differences from Folk Art and Primitive Art and discuss its recent surge into the mainstream of the art world. The term Outsider Art was only introduced in 1972, even though visionary artists have existed for centuries. Can the spontaneous creations of the mentally ill be considered art? Can Fine Art come from untrained individuals who could be considered “natural geniuses”? Come explore this unusual world as explored by art historian Wendy Worth.

019 Eight Movies That Defined a Genre PHS NEW!
Ann Casano, adjunct professor of film studies
Tues., 6:30–9:30 pm, Feb. 11, 8 sessions
$175

In this discussion-based cinema class, we will analyze and watch eight classic genre movies. We will explore two films from four different genres: science fiction, film noir, musical, and western. Movie genres are living entities that change over time, evolving with each passing year to reflect the ever-changing interests of movie spectators. For example, Singin’ in the Rain (1952) and Cabaret (1972) may both technically be musicals. However, everything about them is different, especially in regards to tone and story. This class is perfect for anyone who loves to watch and talk about movies.

020 Theatre in 3-D
Paula T. Alekson, Artistic Engagement Manager
$165
at McCarter Theater

Lectures: 7:30–9:00 pm: January 8, 15, 29, March 4, 18, and May 6 and 20, 7 sessions
Performances: Wednesday, January 22, Goodnight, Nobody; Wednesday, March 11, The Sleuth; Wednesday, May 13, The Refuge Plays

Meaning in all written work is shaped by both the author’s intention and what the reader brings to the text. Plays are unique in offering a third dimension of meaning: that created by the director, actors, and designers. This course will focus on the two plays offered this fall at McCarter Theatre, as well as an additional production either at another regional theatre or broadcast through the National Theatre Live initiative. We will discuss each play and its meaning before each performance; see the play as a group, if you wish; and then explore what has been revealed by the production.

The plays to be included are: Rachel Bonds’ Goodnight, Nobody, directed by Tyne Rafaeli, is an original McCarter commission about a group of old friends who look to stay connected to one another as they age into their 30s and their lives begin to change and their paths diverge with the growing complexities of adulthood (e.g., intimacy, motherhood, illness). Anthony Shaffer’s Sleuth, directed by Adam Immerwahr, is a suspenseful game of cat-and-mouse and brilliant parody of an Agatha Christie thriller, filled with plotted murders, jealousy, and revenge.
Nathan Alan Davis’ trilogy The Refuge Plays is a world-premiere production, directed by Patricia McGregor, the trio of plays traces an eccentric, mystically inclined Black family who share their home, speak their minds, and store their secrets through four generations, as they carve out an existence in a southern Illinois forest.

Tickets and Texts: Manuscript copies of Goodnight, Nobody and The Refuge Plays will be provided to students in hard copy form by the instructor; manuscripts will be collected after the study of each play has been completed. Anthony Shaffer’s Sleuth will be available for purchase at Labyrinth Books in Princeton. In addition, the students will be given a promotional code to purchase discounted tickets for Goodnight, Nobody; Sleuth; and The Refuge Plays during the first class. These tickets will be priced at $40 per play. (Each student may purchase one additional ticket for the same performances at the same price.) Students who already have reserved tickets for these plays may exchange them if they wish.

NOTE: This class will meet in the President’s Lounge Board Room on the lower level of McCarter’s Matthews Theater. It is accessed through the 91 University Place Administrative Services entrance. Copy costs for the first and third play are included in the cost of the course.

You will need one to do the homework (yes, there is homework!).
Homework: You will write out your harmonization of some songs, drawn from a variety of genres. You’ll get to show off your masterful renderings in class! Goal at the end of the course: You will be able to sit at the piano and play (with no sheet music) most popular music, including Christmas music, folk music and some Broadway/pop music.

Home financing for the first time home buyers as well as the home sellers who are juggling selling & buying at the same time.

Sibling rivalry, in and of itself, is a story as old as time. Jealous rivalry dates as far back as the biblical story of Cain and Abel. We note that it was extreme jealousy that drove Cain to slay Abel. Fast forward to the twenty first century and we see that jealousy is still at the root cause of most sibling rivalries. Is it possible than to fully eliminate sibling rivalry when conflicts arise in the home? More than likely not. However, this class will help guide participants through tried and true ways to help mitigate these occurrences before they get out of hand. You will leave with a better understanding and a renewed confidence in how to traverse the sensitivity of sibling warfare.

Whether we like it or not, habits shape our lives—for the positive or negative. This class will provide information on the power of habits and why you should want to focus on them. It will present different
strategies to help you create a desired habit that can then be reapplied to other self-improvement areas. This class will provide a template and system to help you create a positive habit that is important to you. Due to the nature of this process, the class will meet every 2 weeks to allow time for change and the habit to settle in. This four session class will present ideas from the books, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Small Move, Big Change: Using Microresolutions to Transform your Life Permanently by Caroline L.

Qi Healing methods can cultivate, build, move, cleanse and balance our qi, restoring health, well-being and vitality—our birthright.

Come with your friends to learn to cook this delicious and fun Meze taught by Nurcan. For Turkish roasted eggplant salad, we will cook whole eggplant directly on top of the flame to get it charred and softened until smoked and silky. Those are defining elements of many Mediterranean eggplant salads. This one is Turkish-style with chopped vegetables, herbs, a touch of garlic, lemon and olive oil for a sumptuous side dish or as part of a mezze spread. Mucver (zucchini fritters) is a Turkish favorite and is served as a hot appetizer, usually accompanied by a refreshing yogurt dip. We will make this simple yet healthy and delicious dish that is perfect for your guests or just a treat for yourself. Zeytinyağli taze fasulye (Turkish green bean salad) uses a very common Turkish method of cooking vegetables in plenty of olive oil—usually with tomatoes, onions and one or two other ingredients—until they have almost lost their shapes. Then they are cooled and served at room temperature, when the flavors are at their fullest. Very often herbs or citrus juice is added just before serving for a little spark; thick yogurt and lemon wedges are standard accompaniments.

Most people are taught to save for retirement from an early age. Saving as much as you can in tax-favored accounts has always been sound advice. However, in retirement you will be faced with more choices and less clear answers. When do I collect Social Security? What pension option should I select? Which accounts should I use to fund my cash needs? These questions are hard to answer and can impact the likelihood your money will last throughout retirement. Add in the risk of higher inflation, living longer, and higher income taxes to already confusing choices and many people are left paralyzed and make the wrong choices. Join us for our NEW three-week course to help you navigate through and plan for meeting your cash flow needs during retirement.

today to fund retirement, how IRAs, 401Ks, saving accounts and financial products can be transformed into a “pension”. We will analyze the effect of taxes, social security, and medical expenses in a retirement plan and will address differences for single, married, divorced, or widowed persons. You will walk out of this class with actionable ideas. This is a women friendly class—all questions are welcome and there will be no “mansplaining.”

Deciding which personal legal and financial documents to keep and which to throw can be daunting. As a result, most of us either keep everything and eventually face the problem of bloated files in precious space or attempting to replace a critical record that got tossed unknowingly. In this mini-course, we’ll review the importance of personal documents, such as bills, receipts, contracts, insurance policies and statements, bank and broker statements, investment prospectuses and reports, appraisals, annuity contracts and bills, wills, powers of attorney, prenuptials, trust agreements, and tax returns. Some records may be irreplaceable and should be kept in a locked fireproof file; others may be kept in a permanent file; others may be kept for a definite period of time before tossing; still others can be immediately tossed so they never make it into the files in the first place. Making sure the files and folders are set up properly for your purposes will smooth the job of filing away the papers and records.
