The Lower East Side is an iconic Jewish immigrant neighborhood in New York City, having been born and raised in NY, I’ve never been exposed to the life many grandparents, relatives or fellow jewish immigrants had to endure when they first came to NY. Today the Lower East Side of Manhattan has become a prime location where young artists and musicians are performing in a variety of music clubs as well as developers are quickly converting historic plots of real-estate into expensive lofts and new boutiques causing the evolving ethnic mix we have downtown today.

On April 19, Touro College had the honor of hosting Dr. Simone Alter-Muri, Ed.D, ATR-BC, ATCS, L.M.H.C., for an enlightening lecture on the art of the Holocaust. This lecture was originally scheduled for March 1but was cancelled due to snow in Dr. Alter-Muri’s hometown. Extraordinarily, though, its final date was even more appropriate. The lecture, “Reviewing the Past to Empower the Future,” sponsored by the Art, Psychology, and History clubs, and arranged by Professor Grenadir, ended up taking place on Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) which also so happened to be the exact anniversary of the first Warsaw Ghetto Uprising – April 19, 1943.

Her creative mind—till now limited to brainstorming ideas to help teach her preschool kids about numbers and fun ways to color in aleph-bet sheets—raised its antennae. Since she was studying Web and Graphic Design at Touro’s Lander College of Arts and Sciences (LAS), Mushka accepted the project and quit her preschool job, trading in coloring sheets for InDesign files.
