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

 

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
RSVP: To register, submit payment and registration form to the J’s guest services desk by noon on Monday, December 15, or call the J’s Registrar at 703.537.3043. Note: Lunch is not available for walk-ins, same fee.
