 BOB DYLAN 101, Mel Brooks revisited

Notification: Sign-ups for this Monday’s Bob Dylan 101 class and next Monday’s Simon & Garfunkel class are nearly 80 percent full. They will be capped at 1,000 free registrants, so sign up now.

At Noon ET on Monday, November 2, Jewish Culture 101 will launch its five-part Singer-Songwriter course with a close look at the early music of Bob Dylan. What were the messages of songs like “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “The Times They Are a-Changin’”? (Hint: they’re probably not what you think.) Why did his music strike a chord with American youth in the early 1960s? In what ways is it still relevant today? Sign up:

Response to the Singer-Songwriter series has been extremely strong, with more than two-thirds of the slots already taken. The classes will NOT be extended beyond the weekly 1,000-participant limit, so if you plan to come, please sign up today. Most or all classes will fill up. All are Mondays at Noon EST:

November 2 Bob Dylan 101

November 9 Simon & Garfunkel 101

November 16 Peter, Paul & Mary 101

November 23 Carole King 101

November 30 Billy Joel 101
