THE CHOSEN: The Museum Committee Selects Treasures of the Collection

DESCRIPTION: The chosen objects were representative of varied “Judaic threads”. Of course, they indicated the breadth and scope of the Temple Judea Museum collection. In their variety they fueled a discussion of the popular question: “What is Jewish Art?” Additionally, the selections were a personality roadmap of those people who chose each specific object. Woven together they presented a “whole cloth”  - the combined talents of the members of the museum committee – and the wonderful collection they nurture. Each item was identified by the name of the person(s) who selected it and, in many cases, the reason for the selection.
