The Masur Museum of Art is presenting a virtual program:

Chanukah, Women, and Religious Freedom:

Interesting Chanukah Art and Who Was Judith Anyway?

A virtual Zoom talk with guest speaker Rabbi Judy Ginsburgh

Thursday, December 17, 2020.

5:30 pm.

Free and open to the public.

In November of 2021, the Masur Museum is presenting the work of Jewish artist Theo Tobiasse. We are planning an abundance of programming to go along with this exhibition and this virtual talk on December 17, 2020, will be a precursor to the exhibition and events. This virtual event also comes just in time for Chanukah.

Rabbi Judy Ginsburgh, part time Rabbi at Temple B’nai Israel in Monroe, will lead a presentation on the Jewish celebration of Chanukah as depicted in art. Featuring Chanukah ritual items, women, and religious freedom, you will learn a little bit about the holiday of Chanukah and history of Judaism in art.  The presentation will include the story of Judith and how it relates to the Chanukah. Therefore, this presentation is for adults only as the story of Judith may be too violent for children.

You will learn a little bit about the holiday of Chanukah; view many interesting pieces of art that depict Chanukah, women, or religious freedom; and learn about the story of Judith and how it relates to the Chanukah story.  The presentation will be on Zoom and you must register in advance to get the link to attend.  This presentation is free and open to anyone 18 and older.

To attend this event, you must sign up in advance to receive the Zoom attendance link. Sign up before 4:00 pm on Wednesday, December 16, either by calling the Masur Museum at 318-329-2237, or e-mailing us at info@masurmuseum.org. While listening to the Zoom presentation please ensure that your microphone is muted until it is time for questions.
