Support those affected in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast from Hurricane Sandy. Join B’nai B’rith at our international headquarters for an evening reception benefiting the B'nai B'rith Center for Community Action (CCA). B’nai B’rith has been supporting victims of disasters since 1868, when it responded to the devastating flood that crippled Baltimore.
The program will include a special exhibit and viewing featuring the works of local artists Lisa K. Rosenstein and Lauren Kotkin, who will be here to meet you and discuss their works. “Life is chaotic, complex, noisy, and at times painfully full” says Rosenstein. Her work uses nothing but white paint and found objects to create a Zen-like space for contemplation. Kotkin is an artist and exhibits and volunteers for Artomatic, an annual month-long art festival in DC.
Also on view will be highlights from B'nai B'rith's collection of Judaica.

Washington artists Lisa K. Rosenstein and Lauren Kotkin have exhibited locally and throughout the United States. Rosenstein’s serene multi-media works are intended to induce a quiet, Zen-like state in the viewer. Lauren Kotkin’s photographs of Prague’s mosaic sidewalks inspired her new series of collages, which reveals what is “underfoot... yet unnoticed.”
Artwork will be available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting CCA. Your registration fee will also support the B’nai B’rith International Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund.
The B’nai B’rith Center for Community Action produces and supports national programs such as B’nai B’rith Cares for Kids and the B’nai B’rith Disaster Relief Program, as well as community programs such as local volunteer activities at shelters, hospitals, and more.
