Let James Sokol zoom you to Argentina to spend time with our local guide who specializes in the country’s Jewish history!
Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!
Let us whisk you away for an “armchair adventure” on an interesting, educational, fun & live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door …even beyond the grocery store!
Forget the long, masked airplane ride! Let us zoom you across time zones where a local, professional guide will take us to explore sites or topics. Live Q&A, photos, graphics & video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!
Your ticket purchase helps support our local guides who were mostly or completely out of work during the pandemic.
Two Mondays, September 11 & 18
11am-12:30pm (PT), 12-1:30pm (MT), 1-2:30pm (CT), 2-3:30pm (ET).
For this special double-header, let James Sokol zoom you to Argentina to meet our local guide Claudia, who specializes in the country’s Jewish history.
Part-I (Sept 11) focuses on the immigration & history of the Jews in Argentina between the 16th-century and WWII. Learn about the inquisition in Latin America, Jewish gauchos (re: cowboys) and a pogrom in Buenos Aires.
Part-II (Sep 18) looks at the country during WWII through today, including the Nazis & Eichmann, terror attacks, the political & economic crisis, emigration waves, antisemitism and Jewish life & culture today.

The Fine Print:
Fortunately, we’ve had very few issues, but just to be clear…
Your Zoom “Event Link”: The Zoom event link will be emailed to all registrants 2-days before the event begins. To help it land in your “inbox,” before registering, please add the following emails to your contacts:
- JCC Zoom — Zoom3@marinjcc.org
- JCC Alliance — email@example.com
- Sean Fitzgerald — firstname.lastname@example.org
Registrants are requested to make sure the email w/link has arrived by the evening of Sept 9th. If the email does not arrive, please see “Troubleshooting” below.
The email w/link will be re-sent to all registrants about 1-2 hours prior to the event. NB: However, if it landed somewhere other than in your inbox upon registration, it will probably do the same later.
Have a Comcast email? Please refer to this guide: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/spam-filters-and-email-blocking-new-experience.
Troubleshooting: We will do our best to remedy any issues. Registrants who have NOT received the email w/link are asked to check their email “junk” and “spam” folders. If found, please move the email to your inbox. If the email/link is still not there, please contact James (see below) immediately.
Late Troubleshooting: We will try our best – but cannot guarantee – help with Zoom links to guests contacting James less than 1/2-hour prior to the event.
Live Only: In agreement with our guides, artists, instructors, special guests, etc., events are not recorded. Make-up sessions are unavailable. Credit/refund is not given for missed events.
Liability: While we will do our best to remedy any issues, The Osher Marin JCC & its Program Partners cannot be held responsible for 1) issues related to Eventbrite or Zoom, 2) ticket buyers not following the instructions above, nor 3) packing, shipping, or deliver services of food/beverages not received in time for tasting events.
