Once again Congregation Beit Tikva will be presenting several interesting
“92 Y Live” programs. We are now able to schedule two very interesting programs, on Sunday, January 22 and Sunday, February 12. The events start with a brunch at 10am ($5 donation), followed by the showing at 11:00am ($12 donation).
At this time we are not offering subscriptions because of changes in the way the programs are made available by 92nd St. Y. Please plan to come and enjoy our upcoming “92Y Live” programs! Bring friends! We appreciate your support and interest. Look for more details in the Bulletin, by email and on our website.
Below are some 92Y Live Programs that were shown in the past at Congregation Beit Tikva.

Is the War on Terrorism Really Winnable?
Three noted experts offer their perspectives: Hudson Institute’s Michael Doran, former senior director at the White House National Security Council; The Brookings Institution’s Shadi Hamid, author of a new book on Islamic Exceptionalism; and terrorism specialist Jessica Stern, also a National Security Council veteran and award-winning author. Foreign Affairs editor Gideon Rose serves as moderator.
This is a fascinating and informal discussion among experts on whether terrorism can be defeated, rapidly expanding into a discussion of Middle East order, democracy, and appropriate Western responses The discussion was held this year on the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
Sunday, December 18
Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky discuss Defying the Nazis: “The Sharps’ War with Annette Insdorf.
Joukowsky and Burns made this documentary, which aired on PBS in September, about the fascinating story of Martha and Waitstill Sharp, an American couple who saved imperiled Europeans during World War II. This is a discussion about the film, not a screening of the film itself. If you haven’t seen “The Sharps’ War” on PBS, we think you will want to, as the discussion touches on intriguing pieces of their story—and much more. The conversation also has some insights into extraordinary people who do extraordinary things.
“92 Y Live” screenings are part of our Eleanor and Richard Brenner Educational Series.
