Exhibit: The War Time Escape

The Wartime Escape of Margret and H. A. Rey's Journey from France is open through June 20. Margret and H. A Rey are the husband-wife team that created the Curious George series of children's books. Their escape from Nazi occupied France was a harrowing one filled with near misses and suspenseful twists. All along they carried the manuscript for the mischievous monkey we all came to know as Curious George.

Upstander Speaker Series: Chief Rabbi of Poland, Rabbi Michael Schudrich

When a skinhead punched Rabbi Michael Schudrich on a street in Warsaw, the Chief Rabbi of Poland punched him back. This is just one of the reasons why Poland needs him.

For centuries, Poland was home to the largest Jewish community in the world, but nearly 90 percent of that community was murdered during the Holocaust. Many who survived the Holocaust left, vowing never to return. Of those who stayed, many hid their Jewish roots. Consequently, generations of Poles have grown up not knowing their heritage.

Since the fall of communism in 1989, a growing number of Poles have learned of their Jewish roots. Rabbi Schudrich is the person they often turn to for help.
