“Hineh mah tov umah na’im shevet achim gam yachad”. – How good and how pleasant it is that brothers and sisters dwell together (Psalm 133.1)
In these times of anti-semitism and divisiveness it is important for us to unite, to fully represent the mosaic of the Jewish experience, and for the Jewish community to come together.
Art is the universal language that can be the springboard of starting conversations and connections between people.
This exhibition is an opportunity to be together, create dialogues, show solidarity, and to stand up for each other, regardless of affiliation or background.
Made possible with support from CANVAS.
Artists of the Stanton Street Shul are exhibiting with artists of the Jewish Art Salon.
Stanton Street Projects was initiated in 2009. The shul’s upstairs gallery’s inaugural exhibition was Tzelem, by the Jewish Art Salon, curated by Richard McBee and Joel Silverstein.

About the Stanton St Shul:

This synagogue is one of the few tenement shuls still left of the 700 congregations recorded in 1918 serving the Jews of the Lower East Side. The building survives today as a distinctive architectural, cultural and religious landmark of the Yiddish-speaking Eastern European Jewish community of New York City’s Lower East Side, the most famous immigrant district in a city renowned for its immigrant history.
The pictorial display of Mazalot, Jewish East European folk art renderings of signs of the zodiac, on the walls and ceilings of synagogues, were once prevalent throughout Lower East Side Shuls. These rare and precious zodiac paintings on Stanton’s walls represent an almost two thousand year old synagogue tradition that has endured since the Roman era.
