Rabbi Irving and Marly Koslowe Judaica Gallery

Map

WJC is proud to have the Rabbi Irving and Marly Koslowe Judaica Gallery in our main lobby.

This award-winning exhibition space is home to revolving exhibitions that mirror the Jewish world, in microcosm.

Through fine art, folk art and photography, our thematic shows are culled from contemporary artists, historical content and our members’ collections.

The Gallery, in conjunction with other committees, often brings in artists and historians for associated lectures.

 

The Koslowe Gallery is gearing up for a rich and exciting 2014-15 year!

What you'll see first is the exhibition "Go Forth: Ancient Maps of the Holy Land". On generous loan from Ruth and David Hirsh, Westchester residents, the show will consist of Ruth's wide and vast collection of original maps meticulously drawn in the 16th and 17th centuries by storied cartographers of their time. 

Please join us in the gallery for a talk by collector Ruth Hirsh on Thursday evening, October 23rd at 7:45 p.m. We will learn about her interest in ancient cartography of the Holy Land and her international search for these historic maps.  Cantor Ethan Goldberg will join us to lead us in song about the Holy Land. Wine and cheese will be served.


We are pleased to have the privilege of sharing these works with our WJC congregants, students and surrounding community.

Stay tuned for information about future exhibitions!
