Hazak Meeting with speaker Francis Gary Powers, Jr. of George Washington University. Topic: Steven Spielberg’s Movie “The Bridge of Spies” Fact or Fiction? Our speaker is the son of Francis Gary Powers, who was the U2 pilot shot down in 1960 by the Soviets during the cold war. This presentation and Q&A will cover the U-2 Incident of May 1, 1960, the Spielberg movie Bridge of Spies and the need to preserve Cold War history, honor Cold War veterans, and educate future generations about the Cold War. Snacks will be served; free to Hazak members and guests. (See also September 13 for optional viewing of Bridge of Spies at CBE as background for this talk.)

At Congregation Beth Emeth (CBE), HAZAK is a congenial group for all interested adults of an uncertain age who want to continue to grow their Jewish and world understanding in a friendly and welcoming environment. HAZAK members do not need to be CBE members. More info: http://bethemeth.org/hazak.
