MONTHLY CALENDAR & EVENTS

Pizza Hour

February 14, 2016
2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Our next Pizza Hour of the school year will be on Sunday, February 14, 2016. 

This pizza hour topic will be Art Restitution, presented by Dr. Ori Soltes, Professor at Georgetown University's Center for Jewish Civilization and Co-Founder of the Holocaust Art Resitution Project.

The word restitution means the restoration of something lost or stolen to its proper owner. In particular, Holocaust art restitution involves recovering stolen art from the holocaust and the fight to return the art to its pre-WWII owners (or the owners’ heirs). While much art was rescued from the Nazis, much of it has ended at museums or in the possession of new owners – the question of returning this art to original owners involves many legal and other obstacles.

All teenagers are urged to attend and we also invite parents to join us for this Pizza Hour.
