Fundraising: Holocaust Program  
Hillel is bringing the performance, Ani Ma’amin - An exploration of the impact of the Holocaust on American Jews, on April 7 to Jesse Auditorium on the University of Missouri Campus.  It will be free to all attendees.  See the information below to learn more about this program.

CBS would like to help fund this event.  Please help out by giving $25.  You can use your credit card.  Thank you.

Ani Ma’amin (Hebrew for “I believe”) is powerful and thought-provoking modern dance piece exploring the impact of the Holocaust on American Jews.  Choreographed by Shira Greenberg, the 85-minute piece runs with no intermission.  Five dancers recreate the experiences and themes expressed by multiple generations beginning pre-war and culminating at the present-day.  Dynamic and emotional movement is threaded together with poetry and video testimonies from Holocaust survivors and children of survivors, with footage compiled from the University of Southern California's Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education.
