Jewish Clothes, a film by Sol Lang. My wife Mary Bogdan is an artist/gleaner. Much of her work consists of working with found objects, discarded items (AKA trash), that she collects from everywhere... We live in a neighborhood, in Montreal, that has a fairly large Jewish/Hassidic population. One day, as Mary was doing her rounds, she found these two large garbage bags filled with old clothes. She decided to lay them out on our back yard lawn to inspect them and air them out. In fact they were all clean. Evidently washed before bagging for the sake of whoever should find them... Soon after laying them out on the grass, a thunderstorm came and Mary was preoccupied with other things, so she just left the clothes out to get soaked and become victims to the rain and wind... The storm passed as quickly as it came. As I stepped out to look, I saw a sight that felt like a punch to my gut. The clothes were all lying, spread out as if they had been bodies that had disintegrated or separated from the clothes. My feeling was as if the souls were gone and all that was left was the memory of the people that were in them... I photographed the scene and put together what will (hopefully) one day become a photography exhibition... Here I combined the images in a video montage along with a haunting piece of music I composed and performed to convey that initial feelings I felt after the storm... As a Jew whose parents were survivors of the Holocaust in Europe, I am a second-generation survivor. I carry the collective memory and emotional trauma as do so many of my generation whose families endured similar life tragedies. This exhibition and video are representative of the depth of emotional healing that I hope to provoke with my art....

Nathan and Isidor Straus were the owners of Macy's department store in New York City. On a trip to the Land of Israel in 1912, Nathan fell in love with the country, while Isidor decided to leave, returning home on the Titanic. When the Titanic sunk, Nathan Straus believed that it was a sign from Above, and he remained in the Land of Israel. He opened a school, a health clinic and other charity institutions, something for which he was also known in America. The city of Netanya was named Nathan Straus in 1927 as well as Straus Street in Jerusalem. He was also honored for his work by President William Howard Taft.

In 1976 the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked a commercial airplane heading to France from Israel. They took the plane to Entebbe Airport in Uganda where they separated all the Jewish and Israeli passengers and threatened to kill them if Israel did not give in to their demands. Israel sent in a secret undercover unit into the airport where they shot up the terrorists and freed the prisoners. The surprise rescue mission was led by Lieutenant Yoni Netanyahu, the only soldier killed during the mission. The success of the mission called Operation Thunderbolt lead to books and movie being made of the rescue and Yoni Netanyahu's being hailed as a hero. For more visit *******www.IsraelNationalRadio****
