The ceremonies opening the Museum of Jewish History in Poland
The sight of the President of the State of Israel, Reuven Rivlin standing on a stage bedecked with the Flag of the State of Israel beside the flames which burn from the two menorah's adorning the Monument dedicated on this spot to mark the 5th anniversary of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising is stirring and a powerful wordless testimony to what we lost and what we created.

Legion of Young Polish Women is Seeking Outstanding Young Ladies to be Presented at Our 76th White & Red Ball
The Legion of Young Polish Women is seeking outstanding young ladies to be presented at our 76th White & Red Ball. This year, in honor of celebrating the 70th Presentation of the Debutantes, we will be giving scholarships to an accredited school for the Queen ($1,000), 1st Place ($500) and 2nd Place ($250) winners.
Our Debutantes learn ballroom dancing, social decorum, fundraising techniques, charity, grace, poise and are able to interact with all kinds of people in many situations. They develop characteristics young women need to be successful in their future careers and life, as well as achieve an awareness of giving back to the community with the opportunity to receive up to 40 hours of community service. Our Debutantes do all of this while making lifelong friendships and treasured memories!
Please consider becoming a Debutante and being presented, in our beautiful, elegant and historic 70th Anniversary Presentation White & Red Ball to be held at the Conrad Hilton Hotel in Chicago on March 7, 2015.
We welcome all interested Debutantes to our next Debutante Tea on October 26th, 2014 at the Dar Serca Foundation, at noon, 3860 N. 25th Avenue, Schiller Park, IL 60176
