Jewish Heritage Celebration Day

All are welcome!
Several times each year, the Memorial Art Gallery offers Rochester area families and community members the opportunity to learn more about specific cultures.


Suggested donation of $5 per group when you RSVP. 

Currently on view – The 613 by Archie Rand

An enormous multi-panel painting, The 613 depicts surprising responses to the 613 commandments of the Torah, which is the first five books of the Hebrew Bible (or Old Testament). Yes, there are more than 10 commandments—the rules that govern ethical and religious behavior in Judaism. Archie Rand’s monumental installation explores traditions of both biblical interpretation and artistic expression and exemplifies his groundbreaking achievements in the construction of contemporary Jewish iconography.

Sponsored by Louis S. Wolk JCC of Rochester. The Gallery Council of the Memorial Art Gallery is a series sponsor for our Celebration Days.

Your support means the world to us! Thank you!
