    November 18, 2019 - December 21, 2019  
    BlackRock Center for the Arts, 12901 Town Commons Dr, Germantown, MD 20874, USA

    Captured Light: Current Photographic Processes is a regional juried photography exhibit featuring a wide range of genres, capture types, formats, and processes. The 86 works on display were selected by juror Nate Larson who is a contemporary artist and the Chair of the Photography Department at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore.

  • The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

    Round House Theatre, 4545 E W Hwy, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA

    Murder. Mystery. Mayhem. Math. What begins as an investigation into the grisly death of a neighbor's dog results in a remarkable coming-of-age journey for 15-year-old Christopher Boone. A self-described "mathematician with some behavioral problems," our narrator sees things differently than those around him and, like fractals in a kaleidoscope, each revelation exposes another puzzle for him to solve. As the audience follows Christopher's brilliant yet dizzying mind, the full story unravels in a visually dazzling sequence of events onstage. Simon Stephen's beloved Tony and Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon's bestselling novel challenges us to seek out the silver linings in ourselves--and others--as we make our way through the world.

It’s no wonder everyone from pop stars to Grammy-winning jazz artists have handpicked Antico to join them on stage. Ward’s resume is equally impressive, as it includes winning performances at The Lennox International Competition and The National Symphony Orchestra Soloist competition.

  • Finding Relatives in Russian Empire Records for Non-Russian Speakers

    December 15, 2019  1:00 pm - 3:30 pm
    Bender JCC of Greater Washington, 6125 Montrose Rd, Rockville, MD 20852, USA

    The Jewish Genealogical Society of Greater Washington (JGSGW) will host the program, Finding Relatives in Russian Empire Records for Non-Russian Speakers presented by Lara Diamond, at Bender Jewish Community Center (6125 Montrose Road, Rockville, Maryland) on Sunday, December 15, 2019. Activities begin at 1:00 PM including consultations with our genealogy “mavens” followed by the program beginning at 1:30 PM.
    More and more Russian Empire records are becoming accessible online, but few are indexed. But for those who don’t speak Russian, browsing through the records in old-style Russian handwriting can be daunting. This talk will focus on how to identify, within various types of Russian Empire records, records relating to a researcher’s family, in spite of not having any Russian language background. The talk will also cover various sources for online Russian Empire documents and discuss how to leverage these for one’s own research.
    Lara Diamond has been researching her family for 25 years, since she was too young to have a driver’s license and had to rely on her mother as a chauffeur. She has traced all branches of her family back to Europe and most multiple generations back in Europe using Russian Empire-era and Austria- Hungarian Empire records. Most of her research is in modern-day Ukraine, with a smattering of Belarus and Poland. She is president of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Maryland, leads JewishGen’s Sub Carpathian SIG, is on Ukraine SIG’s board of directors, and runs several town-focused projects to collect documentation to assist all those researching ancestors from common towns. She is a frequent speaker at genealogy conferences, and blogs about her mostly Eastern European research at http://larasgenealogy.blogspot.com.

    JGSGW Guest Attendance Policy:
    Meetings and most events are free to JGSGW members. Non-members may attend open events, but not those that are members only, for a fee of $5 which will be applied toward JGSGW membership if the guest joins at the same event. Attendees who require personal assistance due to a health condition or disability may bring an assistant at no charge. The Jewish Geneaology Society of Greater Washington is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping people discover, document and share their family history.

    Round House Theatre, 4545 E W Hwy, Bethesda, MD 20814, USA

    Murder. Mystery. Mayhem. Math. What begins as an investigation into the grisly death of a neighbor's dog results in a remarkable coming-of-age journey for 15-year-old Christopher Boone. A self-described "mathematician with some behavioral problems," our narrator sees things differently than those around him and, like fractals in a kaleidoscope, each revelation exposes another puzzle for him to solve. As the audience follows Christopher's brilliant yet dizzying mind, the full story unravels in a visually dazzling sequence of events onstage. Simon Stephen's beloved Tony and Olivier Award-winning adaptation of Mark Haddon's bestselling novel challenges us to seek out the silver linings in ourselves--and others--as we make our way through the world.
