Join us for a tour revealing objects relating to Black History and Black Jewish History in the collection.
Led by Learning Officer Shereen Hunte, you will get the opportunity to see previously unseen objects from the museum’s stores.
From the role of ‘blackness’ in Holy Texts to the ancient community of Ethiopian Jews, we will be exploring the many ways in which race is portrayed through religion.
Soprano Svetlana Kundish and pianist/accordionist Alan Bern perform and discuss songs on the horizon of memory, from family members, survivors of WWII and rare, rediscovered recordings. In association with the Jewish Music Institute.
