Spots of Light - To Be a Woman in the Holocaust -
Friday, April 8 atThe Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage
"Spots of Light: To Be a Woman in the Holocaust", the first international exhibition to focus exclusively on women in the Holocaust, is more than a catalogue and also much more than an exhibition. This is a demonstration of human and feminine strengths...
Women in the Holocaust applied their minds to a place that deprived them of their minds; brought strength to a place where they had no strength. In a place where they and their families had no right to live, destined to die, they invested every second with meaning.
The exhibition is designed as a large-scale video-art-like installation, which encompasses the entire exhibition space, moves and changes before the viewer's eyes, and gives the historical materials a new and contemporary feel and perspective. Stories of 45 women are told through 10 thematic sections; Love, Motherhood, Caring for Others, Womanhood, Partisans and Underground, Everyday Life, Friendship.
Join us as we, together, view and experience this riveting exhibit .
Date: Friday, April 5

Another Fabulous Collaboration between NCJW and TMTP: The Making of "The Music Man"
NCJW is thrilled to partner again with The Musical Theatre Project to bring another Sunday afternoon program of music and fun - this time The Making of "The Music Man" and we hope you will join us.
It almost didn't happen: Meredith Willson wrote 30 drafts over eight years before The Music Man finally saw the light of day in 1957 - and even then insiders were convinced the show was too hokey for Broadway. But Willson's charming con man, Harold Hill, not only dazzled the small town of River City, Iowa; for nearly 60 years his 76 trombones have led the parade of a great American musical. In TMTP's multi-media concert, you'll hear all of the songs introduced by Robert Preston, Barbara Cook and the Buffalo Bills - including "Goodnight, My Someone," "Ya Got Trouble," "Till There Was You" and "Lida Rose" - and the fascinating story of the musical's creation. Hosted by Bill Rudman and Nanc y Maier with vocalists George Roth and Laura Lindauer.
TICKETS: $26 preferred, $20 general, $5 student. NCJW Members, however, will receive a $4 discount on the price of any preferred or general section ticket through April 19th, and will receive special reserved seating in each section.
