The course will be held Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. through Feb. 27, at 101 Forest Ave., Swampscott.

The Jewish Federation of the North Shore is holding a six-month, $1.3 million campaign dedicated to the support of North Shore partner organizations and Jewish organizations in Israel and around the world. The campaign, led by Marjorie Patkin of Swampscott and Steven Solomon of Marblehead, is being driven by the need to synchronize JFNS’s fiscal year with that of Combined Jewish Philanthropies prior to the merger of the two organizations this summer. To learn more about the campaign, visit http://www.JewishNorthShore.org.

The Hamilton-Wenham Public Library presents “Inspirational Evenings” featuring Jorgelina Zeoli’s video series titled “Miracles,” which incorporates Zeoli’s two autobiographical films about healing from trauma through self-awareness, spirituality, music and art. Book signings and videotaped discussions with holistic practitioners, trauma survivors and members of different faiths will follow both films. The series will run on April 1, 8, 22, 29 and May 6, 13 and 20 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., at 14 Union St., in South Hamilton. Seating is limited; to reserve a spot, call the library at 978-468-5577.
