Gallery Open House: SEE ME

"SEE ME" explores the artist’s play on one's identity. Michal Chelbin’s photography attempts to capture human stories in everyday life; the identities of people not in the mainstream, many of them belonging to the edge of society and existing in the space between the odd and the ordinary. Her main themes are not social or topical, but collective and mythical; she searches for people who have a legendary quality in them.

Curated by Matthew Garson.

Community Security Training: Situational Awareness

Join JFC Security experts for an interactive discussion on how to recognize suspicious behaviors and what to do when you see them. Being aware of your surroundings, whether at work, attending synagogue or going through your daily routine, it is important to know how to recognize behaviors and events that are outside of the baseline of what is “normal” for the time and place. Covering the basics of Situational Awareness, this interactive course will help prepare you on how to spot suspicious behavior and report it which will help to protect yourself, your family and the Community.
