Chanukah in the Shtetyl.
This menorah is part of an installation called “Eine Friedliche Industrie” – a Period Room reconstruction of a secular Jewish home set in Karlsruhe, Germany in the autumn of 1938 and built through the lens of the family’s matriarch. Made entirely of cardboard and Papier-mache, the medium acts as both a superficial vessel for memory and as a signifier of transience. The limited materiality creates a monotonous yet unrestrained atmosphere, allowing the audience to enter and project their own experiences and memories of home and belonging onto the objects and room.
Chanukah Street Art: Hillel Smith painted at the Edlavitch JCC in Washington DC, Monday-Wednesday, December 7-9, along with participation from the JCC’s preschoolers, teachers, and staff. Daily candle “lightings” by special guests over Chanukah will be at 2pm each day (excluding Saturday).
Brooklyn | Yitzchok Moully will be painting at Classon Ave and Myrtle Ave on Tuesday to Thursday, December 8-10. Flames on his menorah will be painted each night of Chanukah by local artists, in partnership with Hadas Gallery.
