Two Exhibits on Israel: Pre-State Israel & Kibbutz History
Now - Sept 3, 2014
You’re invited to explore two unique Israel-related art exhibits. The first exhibit gives a rare glimpse of Pre-State Israel by Armenian photographer Elia Kahvedjian. The second exhibit focuses on kibbutz history, from the birth and early pioneers of the Kibbutz, to its role in defining territory in 1948 Israel, to its purpose today as a model for green living.
Mi Polin / My Poland: The Artwork of Helena Czernek & Aleksander Prugar
Sept 11 – Nov 10, 2014
A transparent mezuzah dotted with Braille. Mezuzot created from the traces left on the doorposts of Jewish homes in pre-war Poland. Each piece in Mi Polin tells the story of a Poland that is revitalizing its Jewish roots while still recalling its dark past. Meet the Warsaw-based art duo behind this exhibit at the free opening reception on Sep 11th.
Exhibits are presented in two locations: The Isaacs Gallery, which is located on your right just past the Osher Marin JCC front desk, and the Kurland Lounge, which is the room on the far left when you enter from the Lobby. Both areas are open during regular Marin JCC hours.
