In 1984, Alexey Pajitnov, working alone on his out of date hardware, changed video game history. Pajitnov turned a children’s block puzzle into the Tetris, the best selling video game of all time. Come to the Russian House at 3.30pm on Thursday November 2nd as we explore fascinating history and surprising relevance of Tetris. Enjoy traditional Russian tea and snacks as we dive into a tale that is equal parts history, spy thriller, and 90’s dance party. This is going to be a wild Thursday, 3.30pm, Russian House.

On Monday, November 6th from 7-9pm in Cornerstone Screening Room, J Street U will be hosting Karen Isaacs and Daniel Roth, co-founders of Achvat Amim. This program brings people from around the world to expose them to the reality on the ground in Israel/Palestine, works with grassroots human rights organizations, and teaches community organizing skills. After recently being controversially defunded, this is a crucial moment in time for us to show our solidarity and support for their work. They will give a presentation and then lead a discussion afterwards, and desserts and refreshments will be served as well!!
