We are pleased to host a traveling art exhibit this fall at the Temple called “The Seventh Day: Revisiting Shabbat” from the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion Museum.
The collection of 36 works includes photography, textile, collage and painting, all exploring some aspect of Shabbat. Created by a variety of international artists, the artworks and ritual objects represent a diverse, 21st-century, approach to this day of rest.
The exhibit will be on display in the Social Hall through Thanksgiving, with the grand opening for the Jewish community after our Rosh Hashanah evening service on Sunday, September 9. The public is invited to visit on Thursday afternoons from 1 to 3 p.m., and other hours available for groups by appointment.
In addition to the traveling exhibit, we will feature Shabbat items from the Temple’s collection in the Madge Rothschild Resource Center. Find resources in the Rabbi Richard B. Safran Library.
