Origins of Judaic Symbols: artifacts from collection of The Morris and Sally Justein Heritage Museum
Opening October 20-30 2013
The Origins of Judaic Symbols exhibition surveys recurring symbols found on the art and artifacts in the collection of The Morris and Sally Justein Heritage Museum. These images provide a concrete representation of abstract ideas – divinity, identity, and culture – silently communicating significant meaning to the viewer. Artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection will be on display, ranging from Torah ornaments and ceremonial objects, to personal artifacts and symbols found in the home.
