Exhibit on Contraptions Opens at The Contemporary Jewish Museum
Prof. Rachel B. Gross contributes to the exhibit's fully illustrated hardcover catalog
The Jewish News of Northern California quotes Dr. Gross, "Jews have always been interested in contraptions. What, after all, are tefillin (phylacteries), an eruv (a circumscribed urban boundary created by Shabbat-observing Jews) and the Talmud but Jewish “contraptions” that resolve “religious dilemmas through the particularities of symbolic logic?”"
Contraption: Rediscovering California Jewish Artists runs through July 29, 2018. More details are available at https://www.thecjm.org/exhibitions/100.
