ISRAEL AMERICAN FILM SERIES PRESENTS THE JEWISH CARDINAL

Sunday, February 1, 4-6 PM, Grant Conference Center.
Join your host, Ze’ev Aviezer, for The Jewish Cardinal, the true story of Jean-Marie Lustiger, the son of Polish-Jewish immigrants, who maintained his cultural identity as a Jew even after converting to Catholicism at a young age, and later joining the priesthood. Quickly rising within the ranks of the Church, Lustiger was appointed Archbishop of Paris by Pope Jean Paul II - and found a new platform to celebrate his dual identity as a Catholic Jew, earning him both friends and enemies from either group. When Carmelite nuns settle down to build a convent within the cursed walls of Auschwitz, Lustiger finds himself a mediator between the two communities - and may be forced at last to choose his side. Wine and Cheese will be served.

CHASING DREAMS: BASEBALL & BECOMING AMERICAN POP-UP EXHIBITION

Visit the pop-up exhibition at LT from January 5 - Feb 27, 2015, Social Hall 
Chasing Dreams celebrates baseball and the many fans, players, and characters who helped shape our American story. Every triumph and defeat, every hero on and off the field, has become another chapter in the history we all share. And for immigrants and minority groups especially, it has played a crucial role in understanding, and sometimes challenging, what it means to be American.

It is the first large-scale exhibition to weave together the history of American sport, leisure, and national identity with the history of Jewish integration into American life. Fascinating artifacts, original films, and digital interactives immerse visitors in the story of how Jews and others have navigated American culture and addressed the ongoing challenges of life in the United States.
