The Jewish Community Center in Sherman and the Sherman Library will team up for a special series, “2018 Great Decisions,” which will run April through November.

The program will meet the first Friday of each month, beginning April 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the 9 Route 39 South center.

The Foreign Policy Association aims to foster an awareness of U.S. foreign policy and global issues. Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion group on global affairs, and sponsors the “Great Decisions” program.

Each month attendees will meet and review issues surrounding a specific topic picked by a panel of experts and discuss the most critical world issues the country is facing.

Participants will watch a short film pertaining to that month’s topic, followed by a discussion related to the issue.

The topics for 2018 are “The Waning of Pax Americana,” “Russia’s Foreign Policy,” “China and America: the New Geopolitical Equation,” “Media and Foreign Policy,” “Turkey: A Partner in Crisis,” “U.S. Global Engagement and the Military,” “South Africa’s Fragile Democracy” and “Global Health: Progress and Challenges.”
