,outneastern virginia JeWlSll News COMMUNITY NEWS i00me Time mem-m-bers to tour Holocaust Museum By Dorothy Zimmermon lecture there will be time to tour A unique tour of the Holo- caust Museum in Washington, D.C. has been planned by Prime Time, an educational and travel group under the auspices of the Jewish Community Center of Tidewater. A Holocaust Museum curator will discuss her view of the Museum's exhibits, why certain areas were emphasized and the staff's experience presenting the story of the Shoah to the public. This behind-the-scenes presenta- tion will be unlike anything you might have heard in previous visits, and it will be an opportu- nity to spend the day with friends old and new. In addition to the the facility, have lunch and peruse the extensive collection of books, posters, etc. in the Muse- um's gift shop. Before departing Washington, we will stop at the Roosevelt Memorial to view the sculptures and gardens depicting FDR and Eleanor. No matter your view of the position of this president during World War II vis-a-vis European Jewry, the site is impressive and well worth a visit. Keep in mind that the ini- tial plan for the sculpture of the President was controversial when it was decided that he would be depicted as other than physically disabled. 'Coffee and Nibbles' an enjoyable event Over 30 women enjoyed our March 3 Prime Time "Coffee and Nibbles." The three panelists, Mimi Karesh, Thelma Laderberg and Ethel-Raye Greenspan, regaled the group with stories of "Growing up as Jewish Women in the South." Many women added their own personal insights, which enriched the members' under- standing of other areas and made for a spirited discussion. Watch for a schedule of future Prime Time activities. Prime Time plans to visit the Holocaust Museum on April 7.
