Classic Israeli Souvenirs on Display

Hosted By: The Florence Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning

The establishment of the State of Israel was a monumental moment in Jewish history. It also led to a breakthrough in Jewish art, with the creation of new sorts of ritual pieces. A new type of art emerged that celebrated the traditional images of the new State: Israeliana. These mass-produced pieces, designed by Israelis, aimed to put Israel’s new identity into the hands of Jews around the world. Visitors to this exciting, newborn, and developing state celebrated it by being consumers of “luxury” goods and trinkets. Bringing these art pieces home, Jews around the world could proudly display what Israel represented to them in, both in practice and in theory.

Join Israeliana expert Dr. Rachael Goldman as we examine this unique art-form and discuss whether its history belongs in a museum or only on our shelves.
