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.

The stories from Poland, Prague, Mexico City, and around the USA progress from hope, to occupation, to violence, to finding a way to rise from the ashes. In 2015, the historical underpinnings of these times rise again with the escalation of violent images and incidents.

Conceived, created and devised by Brain Melt Consortium. Directed and designed by Rachel Kerry. Sound/Video Design: Rachel KerryAdditional designers TBDCastAnnie-Sage Whitehurst, Tori Ernst, Rory Allan Meditz, Ian Prince, Jon Rentler, Melissa Shaw, Chris Smith, Jessica Winograd The year is 1960 and Hollywoods most famous film stars are in trouble. The empire of Cinema has fallen and a new medium is rising to take its place: Television. Judy (a movie star as talented as she is troubled) has decided to take drastic measures and invite America into her home for a televised variety show filled with all of her most famous friends. But things are not what they seem in this fabulous affair. Satanism, serial killers, madness, and mayhem lurk around every corner. All of it will culminate in a terrifying occult ritual that may or may not end the entertainment industry as we know it.A Spectacular Night with the Stars! uses the imagery of classic Hollywood as a lens through which we can explore our anxieties within contemporary popular culture. This piece encourages surreal dance sequences, razor-sharp satire, and deconstructing the aesthetic of 1950s Hollywood.

A Tribute to 50 Years of Service by LCDR. Sutherland (ret)

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.
