The Phillips Collection – Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities
Wednesday, January 7, depart the J 10:30am; return 3:15pm
Contact: Michele.Endick@jccnv.org, 703.537.3095    
“Neo-Impressionism and the Dream of Realities presents more than 70 works that reflect the Neo-Impressionist’s preoccupation with the idea, emotion, or the synergy of senses, particularly from 1888 to 1895, when adherence to the group was at its height and relations with Symbolist writers were especially fruitful. Featuring 15 artists — including renowned artists such as Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Camille Pissarro alongside their lesser known contemporaries — the exhibition welcomes to the Phillips works that have rarely or never before been exhibited in the United States. From idealized landscapes to expressive portraits and figural compositions that highlight their interest in literature and music, the artists created evocative images that went beyond observed reality.”
After viewing this special exhibit, you may want to view the museum’s permanent collection and/or relax and eat lunch in the café (optional, order from menu, on your own). Enjoy a winter’s day at the museum!
Fee: $12/ $8 J member for bus transportation.
Note: There is an additional $10 charge for entry  into the special exhibit. Our trip leader will  collect this charge (cash only) on AM of the  trip to pay at the museum. Do not include  museum fee in payment for bus  transportation.

United States Holocaust Memorial Museum 
Wednesday, January 21, depart the J 10:30am; return 3:15pm
Contact: Michele.Endick@jccnv.org, 703.537.3095 
This trip will honor the memory of our dear friend Al Kaufman who volunteered at the museum and had led several tours for our group in the past.“[The] Museum sponsors onsite and traveling exhibitions, educational outreach, and Holocaust commemoration ... The Center for the Prevention of Genocide works to educate, engage, and inspire the public to learn more about past genocides. . . and to consider what [one] can do to prevent these atrocities in the future ... and [the Center] works to galvanize policy makers both in the US and around the world to create the tools and structures needed to avert the next crisis.”After touring the permanent exhibit, you will have time to view on your own the special exhibits including: Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration & Complicity in the Holocaust. This exhibit “addresses one of the central questions about the Holocaust: How was it possible? The central role of Hitler and other Nazi Party leaders is indisputable. Less well understood is these perpetrators’ dependence on countless others for the execution of Nazi racial policies. Within Nazi Germany and across German-dominated Europe, circles of collaboration and complicity rippled throughout governments and societies wherever victims of persecution and mass murder lived.”Relax and eat lunch in the adjacent kosher café – “on your own” and optional.
Note: No outside food is allowed in the café.
Fee: $12/ $8 J member (includes bus  transportation and museum tour). Lunch is optional and “on your own”

The Ratner Museum, Bethesda, MD
Wednesday, February 18, depart the J 11:45am; return 2:30pm
Contact: Michele.Endick@jccnv.org, 703.537.3095 
It is very unusual for an artist to have a museum permanently dedicated to his work during his lifetime and then sharing it with other artists. Internationally known artist Phillip Ratner has successfully and wonderfully done just that. His fascinating museum features sculptures, paintings, tapestries and children’s books depicting characters and stories of the Hebrew Bible. The museum itself is a rarity, one of only a few in the world devoted to portraying biblical characters. Phillip Ratner is an internationally known artist whose works are on display at the US Supreme Court, the National Zoo, the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island (40 sculptures) and other locations around the world.The heart of this collection is a series of sculptures created by Phillip Ratner to convey the stories of such biblical characters as Noah, Jacob, Miriam, Cain and Abel, and David and Bathsheba. Other images portray the seven days of creation and 12 tribes of Israel.After a short introduction about the museum and the works of art, enjoy viewing Mr. Ratner’s sculptures. Even if you’ve visited the museum in the past, there are now sculptures never displayed before which you can enjoy and there are also wonderful pieces of art on exhibit from disabled artists for you to view and enjoy. One never knows — you may even get to speak to Mr. Ratner!
Fee: $12/ $8 J member (includes bus transportation and museum tour). 
Note: Please consider giving a small donation when visiting to help with the daily upkeep of this wonderful museum.
