Eruv and Monastery in Dialogue: Exploring Spatial Definitions of Religious Community
Join this exploration of how Jewish and Christian structures shape communities through shared purposes and essential distinctions. Rabbi Adam Mintz, curatorial advisor for the exhibition It’s a Thin Line, and Brother John Glasenapp, OSB, will illuminate historical and experiential aspects of eruv and cloister, and answer questions.
10am: Meet outside the Fort Washington Ave. (upper) entrance to the 190th St. A-train station. We will proceed from the eruv to the monastic architecture in The Cloisters Museum.
Free; Space is limited.
Co-Presented by Yeshiva University Museum in conjunction with its current exhibition It’s a Thin Line: The Eruv and Jewish Community in New York and Beyond, and The Cloisters Museum.
