News reports, Facebook posts, and tweets continue to show the havoc Hurricane Sandy left behind. Individuals and organizations responded to help the victims of the massive and powerful superstorm, which cut a deadly and destructive path across the mid-Atlantic and Northeast United States.
B’nai B’rith International, the most widely known Jewish humanitarian, human rights. and advocacy organization, sprang to action (as did many other groups such as The American Red Cross ) to help as soon as Sandy had passed.
The program will include a special exhibit and viewing featuring the works of local artists Lisa K. Rosenstein and Lauren Kotkin, who will be there to meet guests and discuss their works. “Life is chaotic, complex, noisy, and at times painfully full,” says Rosenstein. Her work uses nothing but white paint and found objects to create a Zen-like space for contemplation. Kotkin is an artist; she exhibits and volunteers for Artomatic, the annual month-long art festival in D.C. Also on view will be highlights from B’nai B’rith’s collection of Judaica.
