Mabon is the Wiccan celebration of a successful harvest.  Celebrated on the Autumnal Equinox, night and day are equal, so it is a time of balance when lives can be brought into harmony.  It is a time to address the balance in our lives and to be thankful for success.

Sukkot is the week-long Jewish Feast of Booths or Tabernacles, during which meals are eaten out of doors in a sukkah (tent) in remembrance of the years the people of Israel spent in the wilderness.  The first two and last two days are times to refrain from work.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.

Hibakusha: Stories from Survivors
7:00 PM - 9:30 AM

*WU Campus - Smith Auditorium

On Sept. 21 at Willamette University, “Hibakusha: Stories from Atomic Bomb Survivors” will present the stories from atomic bomb survivors and current Hiroshima residents about their post-war experiences and the growth of peace. The event, hosted by Phi Delta Theta and the Rotaract Club of Salem, is scheduled from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in Smith Auditorium. Although the event is free and open to the public, please reserve seats in advance by emailing PAXstories2013@gmail.com. Tickets will also be available at the door. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear the stories of survival, hope, and the rebuilding of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb. With Willamette’s strong relationship with Tokyo International University of America, and the recent disaster in Fukushima, this opportunity resonates with our community,” says Matthew Bateman, a senior philosophy major and the visit coordinator.
