BalaSole, described by Tim Martin (Dance Europe Magazine) as a hybrid creature--part dance company and part showcase, is the only dance company of its kind in the U.S. with a mission to address the gaps in the field of concert dance. Diversity and individuality are the keywords of the organization, which has mentored and given performance opportunities to over 150 dancer/choreographers since 2010. The Company has presented seasons at Baryshnikov Arts Center's Jerome Robbins Theater, Ailey Citigroup Theater, New York Live Arts, and Tribeca Performing Arts Center.

"What If" in American Jewish History and Contemporary Jewish Life
 
Live Broadcast Begins at 7:30 p.m.
 
Venue: ( Center for Jewish History)
Center for Jewish History
Producer: ( The Bernard Revel Graduate School for Jewish Studies at Yeshiva University)

City: New York

Additional Notes:
Shown live on the Jewish Broadcast Service, this event will launch Professor Jeffrey S. Gurocks latest book, The Holocaust Averted: An Alternate History of American Jewry, 1938–1967 (Rutgers University Press).

The Holocaust Averted has already been lauded as a “provocative, path-breaking book… filled with familiar characters in unfamiliar and intriguing roles that is sure to challenge—and, quite possibly, to infuriate readers.”

This intriguing work considers what might have happened to the Jewish community in the United States if the Holocaust had never occurred and forces readers to contemplate how the road to acceptance and empowerment for todays American Jews could have been harder than it actually was.

Join the audience as Professor Gurock and Rabbi Golub explore many reasonable historical alternatives grounded in what is actually known about the tumultuous, catastrophic and climatic 30 years that bridge the beginnings of the Holocaust, the rise of the State of Israel and Israels triumph in the Six Day War, and what this novel approach to history tells about the real world that Jews live in today.

Book signing and collation to follow.

LCDR Stewart Sutherland (ret) enlisted in the USCG on 30 August 1960. In his retirement he became an active and vital member of the Coast Guard Auxiliary in the port of New York and New Jersey. He will be celebrating his 50th anniversary as a member of the Coast Guard family this year.

THIS IS A SURPRISE SO DONT TELL STEW or CAROL!!!

Throughout the years he has served his nation from the jungles of Vietnam to the frozen wastes of Antarctica. His contribution to the USCG during peace and war has rarely been rivaled. His civilian contributions as a scientist and marine biologist at Columbia University's Lamont Earth Observatory and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute continue to expand our understanding of our oceans and climate.

As an Auxiliarist he serves hundreds of hours a year and maintains the largest facility in the Auxiliary, the former USCGC Point Brown, now known as the M/V Lady B. This facility provides Auxiliary members with a unique opportunity for training that can be achieved nowhere else. He is also a regular presence standing the watch at Station New York and working in the Water Way Management office at Sector New York. His dedication has exponentially increased the body of knowledge, professionalism and effectiveness of the Auxiliary, allowing the 1SR to truly be “first and foremost” in the nation.
