GALLOWAY TWP., NJ – Temple Emeth Shalom's Ninth Annual Summer Speakers Series will once again feature faculty and staff members from The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

Rabbi Gordon Geller said the "Salute to Stockton" talks, to be held on consecutive Fridays from July 7 though July 28 will focus on topics of interest to the Jewish and general community.

"Our previous series were very well-received and we're delighted to have the opportunity to put another "Salute to Stockton" series together," Rabbi Geller said.  "Stockton is home to many world-class scholars, a fine Religious Studies program and the region's only Holocaust Resource Center.  This lecture series is just one more example of the College's partnership with and outreach to our community."

The series of talks will take place at the Temple in the sanctuary during Sabbath Eve Services starting at 8 p.m.  The Temple is located at 8501 Ventnor Avenue in Margate (near the corner of Ventnor and Jerome Avenues).  These events are free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served after the service.

The following is a schedule of speakers and their topics:

Friday, July 7: Professor Patrick R. Hossay: “Is God Green?”

Friday, July 14: Professor Patricia Reid-Merritt: “Black Female Leadership: Power, Politics and Promise”

Friday, July 21: Professor Ronald L. Caplan: “Medicare Part D: Is it Fair?”

Friday, July 28: Professor Linda Nelson: “A Single Life, A Group Story and the Endurance of Cultural Knowledge”
