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.

See Congregation Emanu-El profiled on the virtual Jewish Museum of the American West!
