Current Exhibitions

Subject to Interpretation

October 24 - March, 2018

3-D artists Eric Goldemberg and Veronica Zalcberg of MONAD Studio present a series of ornate, 3D-printed panels hovering over the central space of the gallery, suspended from the ceiling as beacons of light. Each individual panel is articulated to represent a cosmology of communal relations such that the geometry of its subdivisions and connecting arms resonate with the overall rhythmic notion of the singular and the multiple fused together. The result is a walk-through experience presenting Jewish cultural heritage in a new, vibrant and engaging format.

POINTING THE WAY The Art of the Torah Pointer

November 21, 2017– March 18, 2018

The Barr Foundation has made available a remarkable collection of antique and contemporary yads. A Torah pointer, or yad, guides the reader across the words of a hand written Torah without touching the fragile parchment. The yads in the exhibition are made of diverse materials including wood, precious metals, jewels, ceramics and paper. The display of yads transcends religious iconography and appeals to all who appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of fine art..

They are a unique visual testimony to the sanctuary given to eighteen thousand Central European Jews during the period of World War II and the Shoah.
