Yom Hashoah Event - BIG SONIA


In the last store in a defunct shopping mall, 91-year-old Sonia Warshawski—great-grandmother, businesswoman, and Holocaust survivor—runs the tailor shop she’s owned for more than thirty years. But when she’s served an eviction notice, the specter of retirement prompts Sonia to revisit her harrowing past as a refugee and witness to genocide. A poignant story of generational trauma and healing, BIG SONIA also offers a laugh-out-loud-funny portrait of the power of love to triumph over bigotry, and the power of truth-telling to heal us all.

Presented in partnership with the Virginia Holocaust Museum

Sponsored by Dr. Nathan and Lisa Zasler

POA Season Finale - Dancing Through the Decades


Bowen McCauley Dance, Washington metro area’s premier contemporary dance company, will lead us in a celebration of Israel's 71 years of independence with this uplifting and lively dance performance, Dancing Through the Decades. This entertaining journey through time will highlight the iconic dance styles and fashions from the past. Get ready for a bopping, twirling ride through the past 50 years of music including everything from Fiddler on the Roof to a new twist on HIP HOP, with the inspiration of the Broadway smash, Hamilton.

For 21 years Bowen McCauley Dance has energized broadly diverse audiences with inventive and vibrant choreography – a fusion of contemporary and classical techniques set to a sweeping range of musical styles. Showcasing the founding Artistic Director Lucy Bowen McCauley’s choreography, this award-winning company is renowned for its spirited dancers, use of live music, the professionalism of its dance performances and its extraordinary outreach programs for socioeconomically diverse communities.
