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 Fridays each month, beginning April 2, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the 9 Route 39 South center.

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion group on global affairs.

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 that America is facing today.

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,” “US Global Engagement and the Military,” “South Africa’s Fragile Democracy” and “Global Health: Progress and Challenges.”
