From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., nearly 400 students crammed into the Milo Bail Student Center's Fireplace Lounge to make 361 Valentine's Day cards and 61 stuffed animals, which were donated to children at the hospital who have been staying there for long-term treatment or children undergoing emergency procedures.

Black-Jew Dialogues use stories, humor to explore serious problem of hatred

The Black-Jew Dialogues fused personal experiences, theater and comedy to boldly and absurdly tackle issues of hatred and prejudice. The show primarily focused on Ron Jones and Larry Tish describing what it meant for them growing up and living as a black or Jewish American. However, through video and a discussion at the end of the show, the themes of hatred, prejudice, and bigotry as absurdities flowed through and reached out to all types of people.
The show, held on Jan. 23 in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom, was co-sponsored by the Schwalb Center for Israel and Jewish Studies and the Department of Black Studies at UNO. Moshe Gershovich used the event as a the first real university event for the Schwalb Center, and invited much of the Jewish community from Omaha to attend. Faculty, students and community members of all ages and ethnicities were in attendance to share in a unique experience of race, religion, gender and orientation prejudices.
