Jewish Papercuts Virtual Program with Susan Leviton

Sunday, November 15 | 1:00 pm

Join artist and historian Susan Leviton for a Zoom program about the art of papercutting and its unique role in Jewish life. We will explore the multicultural history of the art form and see an array of Jewish papercuts from Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Americas. Examples from the Klein Collection and some of Leviton’s own work will also be featured.

As a master papercutter, Leviton’s work uncovers historic art forms and shines a light on them for 21st Century art lovers to enjoy. Her unique take on Jewish art will add a new dimension to this virtual event!

This event is free and open to the public, and registration is required. Please register online by Friday, November 13.

Collection Connection

1:00 – 2:00 pm on Mondays

Join Educator/Curator Abby Magariel for virtual tours of the Michael Klein Collection at B’nai Jehudah! Learn the secrets behind our objects on display and enrich your own understanding of Jewish traditions.

At the end of every session, you are invited to share a personal Jewish object with the group! Your item does not have to fit in with the weekly theme, but it must be something you love and/or something with a great story to tell. Now’s the time to dust off the shofar from your trip to Israel in 1973, or your bubbe’s favorite pot for making matzo ball soup!

Now offering new monthly tours of the Klein Collection via Zoom.
