The Michael Klein Catalogue: Life Cycles

The first volume of the Michael Klein Collection Catalogue is viewable online, focusing on objects for life cycle events.

Tu B’Shvat Special Installation
Worm Art Installation comes to B’nai Jehudah for the month of February!
B’nai Jehudah, the Michael Klein Collection, and Mitzvah Garden KC are pleased to welcome regional artist Jean Schmitt for a temporary installation of two works inspired by the renewable nature of our earth—the circular system from food scrap to healthy soil to edible greens. This cycle could not exist without billions of the world’s most industrious contributors—worms!   

In celebration of Tu B’Shvat, from Feb. 5 through the end of the month, Schmitt’s large-scale visual art piece and a worm residence and composting unit will be on display at B’nai Jehudah.
