MEMORY and ESSENCE Art Exhibit: Mini Is Mighty

The Memory and Essence art exhibit in Congregation Emanu-El social hall showcases the values, ideas and stories of Jewish life seen through the lens of history.
The exhibit features two small pieces that might not be appreciated at first glance. There is a tiny children’s tea set to the right of Suzie’s doll (upper panel) belonging to Ed Fitch’s mother, Beulah Batinsky Fitch that dates from 1920.
On the other side of the upper shelf is a mid-century Israeli wooden beautifully painted scholar (lower panel) who pours over a text and can be seen with books, a candle, and carpet.  The detail is remarkable as this scholar is approx. 2″ tall!  Please come and enjoy this lovely exhibit.
