Please join Joy Elkayam who will talk to us about the international non-profit,
Parvati.org. It is working to r
ealize the Marine Arctic Peace Sanctuary to protect the Arctic Ocean and
all life on Earth. The Arctic Ocean is Earth's air conditioner and stabilizes
weather patterns globally, but its ice is melting fast and is vulnerable
to exploitation like never before. Learn how a small group of volunteers started
a global movement to create the largest preservation area in history, and how you
can take action too!

"I thought I was the only one." These are the words of Hanni Lévy, one of 7,000 Jews who hid in Berlin after it was declared "free of Jews" by Goebbels in May 1943. Of these, only 1,700 survived. They adopted disguises, hid in abandoned buildings, or were sheltered by Communists or sympathetic Germans. This docudrama traces the true stories of four young Jews who hid in plain sight and survived against all odds.
