Scenes from Israel

The architecture in Israel and the daily lives of the country’s citizens are explored in this moving photography exhibit. Erin Zimmerman is a writer, producer, and director of documentaries about history, people, and biblical archaeology in Israel, Jordan, Turkey, and Europe.

Proceeds from the sales of Zimmeman’s work will go to the cultural arts department of the Simon Family JCC.

Jewish Family Service
14th annual Grieving Children Art Show

Displaying the creative drawings and words of local grieving children and teens, Grieving Child demonstrates how loss affects all those touched by it and offers children and teens the opportunity to see they are not alone. This show, co-sponsored by JFS and Edmarc, provides an opportunity for children and teens to share their feelings with others and to see that they are not alone. The art show is open to any school-aged youth in Tidewater who has experienced the death of a loved one. For more information, contact Debbie Mayer, LCSW, at JFS at 757- 459-4640 or
