Adding Value to the Jewish Community in North America – Beit Hatfutsot Exhibitions:

Operation Finale: The Capture and Trial of Adolph Eichmann

Curated by Beit Hatfutsot, this seminal exhibition is based on confidential documents and artifacts kept by the Mossad (Israel’s intelligence agency) for fifty years, this exhibition reveals not only history at large, but the powerful story of the darkest chapter and gravest calamity in Jewish history as viewed through the lens of the dramatic capture and trial of Adolf Eichmann.

Here Comes the Bride: Wedding Gowns Embroidering a Jewish Story

Initiated by the Israeli Friends of Beit Hatfutsot, in partnership with Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art, the exhibition is the outcome of a unique project, integrating the heritage of the Jewish people with present-day fashion, creating a dialogue among culture, art, tradition and contemporary life. The result is a spectacular mosaic of 12 sensational bridal gowns reflecting Jewish cultural and family traditions from around the world. Much as the threads of these extraordinary creations bind together various experiences of Jewish culture, this exhibition collectively links us as individuals from different countries and origins to our shared Jewish heritage.

  • February 17 – June 16, 2016:  Herbert & Eileen ​Bernard Museum of Judaica ​at the Skirball Center at Temple Emanu-El, New York City
