Museum

The Elizabeth S. and Alvin I. Fine Museum

 

The Fine Museum serves as a venue for a popular series of changing exhibitions on a broad range of themes. Recent shows have focused on Jewish-American identity, the contemporary experience of Jewish holidays and rituals, and the variety of religious practices in Israel.

Over the years the Museum has established a reputation for featuring works by internationally renowned Jewish artists such as Marc Chagall, Camille Pissarro, Peter Krasnow, Max Pollak, and Jacques Schnier. In addition, the Fine Museum has been a leader in recognizing emerging Jewish talent, presenting the West Coast premieres for artists Ori Sherman, David Moss, and Shalom of Safed.

Congregational history and Jewish art also intersect in many of the Fine Museum’s exhibits, especially those highlighting the contributions of artists with personal ties to the Temple. Among the well-known artists affiliated with Temple Emanu-El were illustrator Ernest Peixotto (whose father was president of the Congregation from 1896 – 1905) and painter Joseph Greenbaum (whose uncle, Werner Phillips, was president from 1905 – 1906).

Whether displaying groundbreaking travelling exhibitions or items from the permanent collection, the Fine Museum maintains its commitment to making Jewish art and history accessible to a diverse audience.


Emanu-El Preschool Exhibit

Emanu-El Preschool student art is on display in the MMR and Chapel Hallway through May 7!


Not Forgotten: Jews From Arab Lands

Erella Teitler was born into a Sephardic family in Israel and has a strong connection with her Jewish identity. Her exhibit, Not Forgotten, highlights the lives of Jews from Arab lands who were forcibly expelled from their homelands during the mid-20th century.

Erella incorporates collage, mixed-media, altered books and monoprints in her art. She has exhibited in juried shows and
galleries throughout Southern California. She is a member of Women Painters West, California Artists Guild, Jewish Artists Initiative, Pasadena Society of Artists, Collage Artists of America, Southern California Women’s Caucus for Art and LA Experimental Artists. She also serves on the board of directors of Platt Gallery at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles.

This exhibit comes to us through the generosity of JIMENA: Jews Indigenous to the Middle East and North Africa.

Israel Impressions: the Photographs of Paul Margolis

The Elizabeth S. and Alvin I. Fine Museum is pleased to present “Israel Impressions: the Photographs of Paul Margolis” from May 11 until June 27 in the Main Sanctuary Foyer.

Paul Margolis is a documentary and fine art photographer, as well as a writer. His subjects include people living on the margins of society, vanishing Americana, historic architecture, and the vibrancy of life on the streets. He uses traditional cameras in his work and he still hand-processes and prints black and white film for the classic look that it gives. In the fall of 2013 and again the following year, Paul Margolis visited Israel to photograph the land and people. He covered 11 different cities in 14 days, working the streets, market places and homes with his quiet, discreet Leica camera and black and white film. The photos reflect pastry merchants discussing their wares, Arab fishermen, a rock festival held close to the border with Gaza, a very pregnant young woman in the Negev Desert, a portly bedding merchant re-lighting his cigarette in a quiet moment, and many other scenes.

These photographs are a small portion of the work representing slices of day-to-day life in Israel. Web Site: http://www.paulmargolis.com

This Is Bay Area Jewry

The San Francisco Bay Area Jewish community has been referred to as “the diaspora of the diaspora” and is often portrayed as the edgiest, least engaged and most outrageous. Many of us embrace our role as bellwether to American Jewry. Our community includes born Jews of color, interfaith couples raising Jewish children, Jews by choice from Egypt and Asia, LGBT Jews, adoptive parents, and the list goes on.

In these 16 portraits, you will find that each person, couple or family has loved ones who are not Jewish. The reality of Bay Area Jewry is that we are all touched by our non-Jewish family members. How we incorporate our diversity into Jewish practice is admirable and, we hope, an example to other Jewish communities who are seeking harmony and mutual acceptance.

Exhibit can be seen in the Chapel hallway July 6 – October 31.
