Our daily column, 5 Things You Need to Know Today, will help you to get your day started and offer you some fodder for water cooler conversation.
1. Temple Beth Sholom will present tonight at 7:30. The lecture features Jeffrey Robbins, chair of the New England Anti-Defamation League. He will speak on the the impact of the United Nation's recognition of Palestine as a non-member state on Israel and the United States. As a U.S. delegate to the United Nation's human rights commission in Geneva, he is uniquely suited to offer insights into geopolitics.

Dr. Aihan Kuhn, Director of Chinese Medicine for Health, Inc. and New England School of Tai Chi in Holliston, will teach various activities to prevent aging, improve memory, emotion and health at the Callahan Senior Center, as part of the Framingham Library's Adventures in Lifelong Learning program. True Brain Fitness begins at 3 p.m. The program is funded in part by the Metrowest Health Foundation.
