More from MEMORY and ESSENCE Art Exhibit

Memory & EssenceThe Memory and Essence art exhibit opened at the Calling All Artists Gala 2019. This exhibit showcases the values, ideas and stories of Jewish life seen through the lens of history. We will tell a few of the stories intermittently. Thank you to everyone who helped make this exhibit happen.
The Exhibit includes a very beautiful BRIS GOWN and CAP from Rabbi Harry’s family. Lined in satin, with lace embroidery, the gown is in perfect condition after many generations of family use.  The engraved silver BABY CUPS are cups from Janna Ginsberg Bleviss as a baby. Off to the right is a Yiddish cookbook, Tempting Kosher Dishes, belonging to Janis Diner Brinley, from 1930, put out by the B. Manischewitz company. Please come and enjoy this lovely exhibit.
