"JUDAICA: Celebrating Temple Israel's 150 years"
2001-03-24 until 2001-05-20
Dayton Art Institute
In honor of Temple Israel's Sesquicentennial, an
exhibition of 1udaica and ancient manuscripts will be on display in the Lower Court of
The Dayton Art Institute from March 24 through May 20. Drawn from the collections of
the Temple and two private collectors, Ronnie Wasserman Harlan and an anonymous
collector, JUDAICA: Celebrating Temple Israel's 150 years represents the rich tradition
of objects created for personal and public use as they fit into Jewish life. The Judaic objects date from the 19th and 20th century, while the manuscripts, many of which are
iIluminated, date from as far back as the 11th century. These objects vary from
contemporary to ancient, silver to parchment, and show a glimpse of the diversity and
beauty of Jewish art. Admission is free.
As the Miami Valley's only fine art museum, The Dayton Art Institute offers
a full range of programming in addition to daily exhibition of its permanent
collection. The galleries are open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day and Thursdays
