This is a Soul: The Misson of Rick Hodes
Monday, October 25; 7:30PM; JCC Hart Theatre; $8/$10
"Whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world."
Dr. Rick Hodes went to Africa more than two decades ago to help the victims of a famine. Twenty-eight years later, he is still there. This Is a Soul tells his remarkable story, from suburban America to the University of Rochester medical school to Mother Teresa's clinic in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where Rick found his calling. Acclaimed journalist Marilyn Berger went to Africa to write about Dr. Hodes and, while there, she too fell in love with the children - and one in particular. Berger has worked for The New York Times, Newsday, The Washington Post, ABC News and NBC News.

Generously underwritten by M&T Bank.
