Current Exhibitions


On View Through October 23, 2016

Hollywood films in the three decades after WWII portrayed 4,000 years of Jewish historical identity and, in some of the biggest box office hits of all times, transformed the image of the Jew from embattled to triumphant. Featured are over one hundred flamboyant posters and bold advertising materials for films ranging from Samson and Delilah, The Ten Commandments, and Ben-Hur, to Exodus and Fiddler on the Roof. MORE>

Jewish Treasures of the Caribbean by Wyatt Gallery

On View Through December 11, 2016

This exhibition, by photographer Wyatt Gallery, documents the oldest Jewish synagogues and cemeteries in the Western Hemisphere. Images from the remaining historic Jewish sites in Aruba, Barbados, Curacao, Jamaica, Nevis, St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. Eustatius and Suriname reveal the significant yet little-known legacy of Judaism in the New World. Once home to thousands of Sephardic Jews from a melting pot of Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and other cultures, these dwindling communities now contain only five historic synagogues. MORE>
