A Collage of Customs, Iconic Jewish Woodcuts Revised for the Twenty-First Century
This exhibition featuring works by artist Mark Podwal offers inventive interpretations of woodcuts from the 16th-century Sefer Minhagim (Book of Customs) and combines lighthearted, imaginative whimsy with insightful commentary on Jewish customs and history. He not only injects a sense of playfulness into religious objects and practices but also invites deeper contemplation and appreciation of their significance.

A chronological sequence of engaging displays will showcase more than 700 works from the Museum’s world-famous holdings, offering fresh dialogues and thematic groupings. The newly reconfigured galleries—which will include recently acquired paintings and prestigious loans, as well as select sculptures and works of decorative art—will illuminate the interconnectedness of cultures, materials, and moments in the collection.
