Wednesday, January 1: NO MEN'S GROUP-JCC/Community Campus Closed-New Year’s Day
Wednesday, January 8: Government Corporate Subsidies-What are Government Corporate
Subsidies? Why are subsidies given to corporations? What industries receive subsidies? Are they
fair? Do they work? Is there a better way?
Wednesday, January 15: Alternative Endings – Trends in Death Rituals-If you could plan your
end of life, what would you do? If you could redo someone else’s end-of-life ritual, who and what
would you do differently? Can we plan our own personal “Alternative Ending”? Are funeral rituals
Wednesday, January 22: Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Legacy and Life-As we
commemorate the birthday of the Civil Rights icon, what are your recollections of Dr. King? What
were/are his greatest achievements? How do you think Dr. King would view and what would he say
about our current society and race relations?
Wednesday, January 29: Capital Punishment-What purpose(s) does capital punishment serve? Is
capital punishment a deterrent to crime? Does the existence of capital punishment impact the
morals of a society and government? What message is sent by societies that have capital
punishment? Should capital punishment be retained or abolished?

Wednesday, February 5: Congressional Filibuster-What is the “filibuster” and why does it
exist? Does it serve a useful purpose? Who does it help and when and why? Does the “nuclear
option” render the filibuster obsolete? Should we keep the filibuster or do away with it?
Wednesday, February 12: Confederate Monuments-History or Bigotry-There is a heated
debate about the presence, message and place of Confederate statues, monuments and flags.
What message do they send? Should they be removed? Where, if anywhere do they belong?
Wednesday, February 19: Presidents’ Day-Who was your favorite U.S. President and why?
Which President do you think had the greatest impact on the United States and why? Who do
you think was the worst President? What do you remember most about a specific U.S.
Wednesday, February 26: Food and Memories-Food is a universal connector of people,
cultures, traditions and families. What was your favorite food growing up? What are your fondest
memories involving food? Was there a food or foods that evoke certain memories? How were
food and holidays intertwined in your family?
Bagels and coffee will be served. Meet new friends; see old friends. What happens in Men’s
