World Bipolar Day Daniel Bergner The Mind and the Moon

Called by the NYT Book Review “A profound and powerful work of essential reporting," Bergner recounts his brother’s journey from his bipolar diagnosis along with others’ gripping, illuminating stories. Bergner beautifully explores how to seek a deeper engagement with ourselves and one another—and how to find a better path toward caring for our minds.

The book is about vulnerability and personal dignity, the terrifying choices confronted by families and patients, and the prospect of fascinating new theories of treatment from pioneering labs.

Women’s History Month Events Focusing on the Holocaust

Women in the Holocaust: A Feminist History with Dr. Zoe Waxman
Date: Monday, March 20, 2023
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Throughout the Holocaust, the political and social order of oppression, hierarchy, and suppression of Jewish women was apparent. It was an essential part of Nazi policy, which targeted women because of their reproductive ability. Nazis singled out women as bearers of the next generation.

Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Against extraordinary odds, they escaped Nazi slaughter and transformed from young innocents to courageous resistance fighters. Join critically acclaimed film director Julia Mintz as she explores the experiences of Jewish women in partisans’ movements and shares their stories of resistance, heroism, and resilience.

Holocaust Impact Theater (HIT) is a unique high school student theater project developed by Ruth Gordon, a career educator. Students are taught the process of writing, producing, performing, and directing their own script, while learning theater and writing skills that will last a lifetime. Students use the atrocities of The Holocaust as a platform to better understand and teach their audiences what happens when hate infiltrates a society. The students bridge historical events from the past with current, social injustices. The goal of each production is to develop a clearer understanding of the need to obliterate these injustices while creating the sense of celebrating tolerance and diversity.
