The exhibit The Seventh Day: Revisiting Shabbat is an exhibit from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum in New York. The weekend will consist of a Shabbat Dinner on Friday night with an opportunity to preview the exhibit, a wine and cheese reception with curator, Laura Kruger on Saturday night, and a Religious School program on Sunday.
- At the Erev Shabbat service on April 20, Rabbi Emeritus Jason Edelstein will introduce our guest speaker Bruce Berman, a Pittsburgh-based architect, designer, and cabinet maker, and the creator of the ark, lectern, Torah stand, and Recognition Board that grace our sanctuary.
- If you plan to attend the wine and cheese reception on Saturday, April 21 at 7 p.m., RSVP to Carol and Bob Gordon at email@example.com. Please bring your friends.
- The exhibit will be open to the public on Sunday and Monday from 2-5.
- We are looking for volunteers to uncrate and help hang the art exhibit. We plan to work afternoons starting Sunday, April 15 thru Thursday, April 18. We also will need some help to pack up the artwork on Tuesday, April 24 and Wednesday, April 25. If you are able to help, please contact Carol and Bob Gordon and let us know when you are available.
The Seventh Day: Revisiting Shabbat is a fine arts exhibition that addresses the ever changing and life enhancing merit of the celebration of Shabbat. The three Abrahamic faiths—Judaism, Islam, and Christianity—each adhere to the teachings of the Hebrew Bible. The act of ‘creation’ is our beginning. Genesis reveals and Exodus repeats “remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.” Each generation, building on the shoulders of the past, fine tunes and/or embellishes the patterns of previous traditions.
This exhibition explores, through a 21st-century perspective, the very meaning of the Sabbath with joy, ingenuity, intellectual commitment, and profound beauty. Many leading international artists have created new works including ritual objects. Studio artists use their skills as painters, sculptors, and photographers to delight us with amazing insights and life enhancing beauty.
