Eitz Chaim will host an exhibition featuring artist

Bela Taraseiskey

from September 28th, until October 9th.

The exhibit displays Bela’s art, paintings and drawings, inspired by the horrors of Holocaust she learned from her mother Rosa. Her mother and cousin survived the Holocaust in Raseiniai, small rural town in Lithuania with the help of three heroic local Lithuanians who risked their lives by keeping two Jewish young women in hiding. Each work of Bela’s art represents a living testimony from the Holocaust, as well as a declaration of the invincible human spirit that refuses to surrender.
Bela Taraseiskey sat with survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust in Raseiniai for countless hours over several years, carefully listening and documenting their stories of pain, grief, resilience and quiet victory. In mid-2010, she submitted the nomination of her mother’s three saviors to Commission for the Designation of the Righteous at Yad Vashem. In January of 2011 three Lithuanian saviors were recognized as Righteous Among the Nations.
About the Artist
Born in 1946 in Kedainiai, Lithuania Bela is an accomplished artist and educator with more than 20 years of Art experience in. She studied Architecture and Arts in Lithuania. In 1993 Bela joined and became an active member of the Smithtown Art Center in New York.
From 1998 to 2004 she owned the “ART on 9th” art gallery in Hermosa Beach California, where she organized Art shows, promoted Art educations, taught Art classes. During that period her paintings were exhibited and received commendations at Juried Art Competitions throughout California. Bela’s unique approach to modern art has been well accepted and her paintings are now part of collections in USA, Lithuania, Russia and Australia.
In April 2001 she was among artists chosen to present their artwork in exhibition at New Century Artist Gallery in SOHO New York. She firmly believes in power of art to stimulate dialogue between people, and formulated the notion of teaching the Holocaust through the “Lens of Art and Testimony”.

Youth Group 7th – 12th grades


As most of you know, the CCC building has undergone some rapid changes in the last 2 weeks. As such it is EVERYONE’S goal that we maintain the new and improved look.

Guidelines
1. All cups of anything need to have a lid. Do not put any cups on the floor. Keep cups in hand until they are empty, so it will not be tipped over and spilled on the carpet. All spills are to be taken care of immediately, do not just walk away. Blot up with paper towels and a damp cloth. REPORT all spills to someone in leadership for spill follow-up. NO FOOD in the Auditorium!
2. Please do not slide chairs on the carpets OR on the vinyl floor. The vinyl floor last week was marred by one of our own (Saturday), a person drug a chair across the new floor tile. There is a permanent mark in the floor now.

Thank you for your cooperation. Dan Boron
