The Seventh Day: Revisiting Shabbat Opening Preview
Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI

Thirty international artists explore one of the pillars of Jewish practice and belief: the sanctity of the Sabbath through provocative works of art.  In an era when technology and culture have eroded the boundaries separating work, play, and repose, their works invite us to delve into the possibilities and new definitions of renewal symbolized by the 'day of rest.'

LOMED Book Club: The Sabbath by Abraham Joshua Heschel
Jewish Museum Milwaukee, Milwaukee WI

In this brief yet profound meditation on the meaning of the Seventh Day, Heschel introduced the idea of an "architecture of holiness" that appears not in space but in time. Judaism, he argues, is a religion of time: it finds meaning not in space and the material things that fill it but in time and the eternity that imbues it, so that "the Sabbaths are our great cathedrals."
