Join docent Diane Beckman for a guided tour in French of the Judaic Art collections at NCMA
Saturday 28 May, 1-2pm
The North Carolina Museum of Art is one of only two general art museums in the country with a permanent gallery devoted to Jewish ceremonial art. The Judaic Art Gallery opened in 1983 under the guidance of Dr. Abram Kanof (1903–1999), physician, medical professor, and scholar of Jewish art and symbolism.
The Judaic art collection spans three centuries and four continents, embracing a wide variety of forms and artistic styles. It features objects associated with most aspects of Jewish ceremonial life: synagogue worship, observance of the Sabbath and other holidays and festivals, rituals marking the life cycle, and the sanctifying of a Jewish home.
