Jewish Ceremonial Art: Continuing the Conversation
Hosted By: Jewish Studies at Fordham University
Jewish ceremonial objects have been studied and collected for nearly 150 years. In the past few decades, however, their importance in understanding social, historic, and aesthetic issues in a variety of cultural contexts has begun to increase.
This program is dedicated to the memory of Vivian B. Mann, a long-time Judaica curator at The Jewish Museum in New York and head of the graduate program in Jewish Art and Visual Culture at The Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
Building on her legacy, Laura Arnold Leibman and Maya Balakirsky Katz will each speak about a ceremonial object from the vantage point of their different disciplines, and then engage in a conversation with Magda Teter about the state of the field today and the possibilities for the future.
