Julia Zeuner

Director, Himan Brown Senior Program, 92nd Street Y.

Brian Rose is the consummate professional and has been as incredible addition to our faculty during Covid. Our members are thoroughly engaged in his informative , enjoyable and beautifully presented Zoom lectures.  After each lecture, I am flooded with emails complimenting Brian and asking for more.  And more we shall continue to offer – via Zoom and in person!  

Stephanie Owitz

Director of Arts, Culture & Learning, Phyllis & Harvey Sandler Center, The Adolph & Rose Levis Jewish Community Center

Brian Rose has [been] doing his excellent virtual presentations for the Levis JCC in Boca Raton, throughout the pandemic. He has done 20+ presentations and we still have not run out of topics! Brian’s lectures are so well researched and his style of presentation is so engaging.  My audience loves him and his programs are always very well attended! These virtual programs have truly been a lifesaver during the difficult days of the pandemic. Even as we return to more in person programs, we will continue to offer Brian’s lectures, virtually, because they are just too good to give up! We also look forward to the day (hopefully soon) when he will visit us in Florida and present in person.

Program Manager,  The OASIS Institute - Washington, D.C. Metro Office

A silver lining of the pandemic has been that lifelong learners at Washington Metro Oasis have been to enjoy Brian Rose’s fascinating film and TV history presentations via Zoom.  Our happy partnership began in July 2020.  We’ve received many wonderful comments about Brian’s presentations.  Here is just one example, “He is terrific...well prepared, knowledgeable, wonderful clips!”  More than twenty programs later, Oasis members regularly ask, “When is Brian’s next class?”

Kathleen Raskob

The COVID-19 pandemic brought a silver lining to Albuquerque Oasis' educational offerings - Zoom lectures. Through a referral from the Washington DC Oasis center, Albuquerque began offering Brian's courses in 2021 with excellent reviews. Comments from participants include the following: "well- researched, relevant visuals, thought provoking presentation;" "there is not enough "humor" today and Mr. Rose reminds us how funny life can be;" "this was an outstanding presentation by a skilled presenter. I loved it and his enthusiasm;" and "Very comprehensive, entertaining presentation---liked the movie videos illustrating points made in the lecture."
