An Inside Look at the Census Bureau

Wednesday, December 11, 10:30am–noon
Presented by Joe Quartullo, Data Dissemination Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau
The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories. Many people think that the Census Bureau only works every 10 years, but there’s a good chance you are seeing or hearing about work that it conducts the other nine years. Important information on employment, unemployment, health, crime, consumer spending, the number of new homes constructed, and the number of people in poverty are just a few of the topics collected in the Bureau’s monthly, quarterly, and annual surveys. Information from these surveys supplies vital statistics used by, among others, government officials, corporations, Chambers of Commerce, academicians, researchers, and librarians. Joe’s presentation will highlight the social, economic, demographic, and housing data available from these surveys at the national, state, county, and local levels. Easy online tools to access this data will also be demonstrated, along with an update of the planning and status for the 2020 census. Count yourself in on this program!
Fee: $5
RSVP: Shelly Rosenstein or 703.537.3062


Spot a Stroke, Stop a Stroke, Save a Life

Wednesday, December 4, 10:30am–noon
Presented by Alan Stillman, Public Health Advocate leading Stroke Smart Alexandria, CEO of Kwikpoint; Adam Dodd BSNRN-BC, Heart Failure & Pre-Op Open Heart Navigator, Inova Alexandria Hospital
Stroke Smart Alexandria is a campaign to stop the scourge of stroke. One in six people will have a stroke in their lifetime that will cause disability or death. There are very effective treatments that can completely stop a stroke and save a life. The treatments are very time-sensitive, so it is critical to know how to spot a stroke immediately. Alan, a 30-year resident of Alexandria, saw his family devastated by stroke and is committed to educating the city on how to stop strokes. He has given a TED talk on the topic and will be sharing this critical information as well as donating some educational tools to support the campaign. Adam will also share ways to help prevent heart problems.
Fee: $5

Pre-Chanukah Celebration at the J

When Harry Met Sally: The Jewish Deli in Pop Culture

Thursday, December 19, 1pm–3:30pm
1pm: Boxed Lunch (included in fee)
1:40pm: Program
Presented by Ted Merwin, Former Professor of Religion and Judaic studies at Dickinson College; Founding Director of the Milton B. Asbell Center for Jewish Life; author of the National Jewish Book Award-winning, Pastrami on Rye — An Overstuffed History of the Jewish Deli.
“In New York, L.A., Chicago, and other cities, the Jewish deli was a gathering place on par with the synagogue, a convivial space where the overstuffed sandwiches symbolized nothing less than the achievement of the American Dream. Over time, the deli also became an iconic part of American popular entertainment, in dozens of plays, films, TV shows, songs, and stand-up comedy routines. From Aaron Lebedeff's signature tune, "Rumania, Rumania" to John Belushi's "Samurai Deli" sketch on Saturday Night Live to Rob Reiner's film When Harry Met Sally, the deli and its fare became emblematic of Jewish culture for Jews and non-Jews alike.” — Website of Jewish American Heritage Month. Sale and signing of Mr. Merwin’s books follows the presentation. 
Fee:  $28 (includes program and boxed deli lunch — 1/2 corned beef sandwich, knish, side salad, and dessert) Notify Michele for vegan/gluten-free meal (hummus, salad, side dish, and fruit) at least one week prior to the program. No substitutions.
Code: #10090

Film: Mona Lisa is Missing

Wednesday, November 20, 10:30am–12:30pm
2012 | 95 min. | Documentary
Come join us for this fun morning where we bring a bit of Italy to you! Mona Lisa is Missing is the tale of a 35-year long obsession to find the truth about why and how in 1911 Vincenzo Peruggia stole the iconic Mona Lisa painting. Since 1976, Joe Medeiros, former head writer of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, was fascinated with the story. But in 2008, it became more than an interest when Medeiros discovered that Peruggia’s only child, 84-year-old Celestina, was living in the town where her father had been born. That's when the idea for the documentary was born. Celestina, like Medeiros, wanted to know the truth about her father’s theft (he died when she was a toddler) and she gave Medeiros her blessing to bring back answers, no matter what the facts would reveal. Join us to find what writer Medeiros discovers and participate in a special Skype session with him!
Fee:  $8 (includes Italian cookies!)
RSVP: Roberta Sherman
