Still Traveling: Buzzing Berlin
Join the Gordon Center to zoom to Berlin for four virtual “trips” in Germany’s capital, which is buzzing with history (much good, some not — obviously!) and culture. In fact, it was once called “the Athens on the Spree (River)” because of the significant cultural, scientific and architectural developments and achievements that happened there. Our professional guide, a long-time resident of Berlin, will share his insights and experiences in this dynamic and exciting city. Presented in partnership with The Osher Marin JCC and the National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance. 2-3:15 p.m.; online; $12.50 per ticket; for more information, visit
