WISH WE HAD THIS PLATE
If you could make a Seder plate, or any kind of Judaica, what would it be?
Passover has already passed us over, but it’s not too late for us to admire this fantastic seder plate created by Morgan Levine, who happens to be the sister of YUM’s curator. Check out his post below, and follow him at zcurator.tumblr.com.
Thanks zcurator!

SEDER PLATE FANTASTIC - PLATE
This wonderful Seder plate, created by crafting/pottery phenom (and my sister) Morgan Levine was central to our family’s Seder - the ritual, interactive meal during which Jews re-enact the exodus from Egypt.  
Morgan wanted to produce a version of this plate for years, but doing so presented a surprising number of technical conundrums. It was only thanks to some fruitful collaborations at Maine’s Haystack, the famed ‘summer camp for artists,’ that Morgan was able to produce this otherwise light and airy piece. 
Can’t wait to use it next year!
Thanks morganlevine!

The Seder plate I made last summer making its debut. Happy Passover!!

STRING VORTEX - FROM IT’S A THIN LINE

I’m working on a program with a colleague on my current exhibition, It’s a Thin Line - the Eruv and Jewish Community in New York and Beyond, and I’ve been trying to find an image for the program.  I started working with a shot of one of the art pieces in the gallery, and had a little fun with one of the pictures.  The piece, extruded (an eruv project)by New York artist R. Justin Stewart, is a timeline and map of Manhattan Eruvs from 1907 - 2012. 

This image, taken from the bottom of the sculpture, makes the thousands of strings that comprise the pieces look like a frame from 2001: A Space Odyssey — good or bad.    Anyway, just a little fun, but here’s an image of the original:

FIRST WARM DAY IN NY - WATCH OUT FOR CROCS!
Not the well known shoes, though perhaps you should keep clear if you’re so inclined. 
Today is the first actually warm day in New York in 2013.  If you’re out and about by Union Square, stop on in to YUM.  We’re free from 5-8 pm.  In the meantime, enjoy this wonderful image depicting the ancient Nile in a 1933 Haggadah.

NICE BOOK - SHAME IF SOMEONE GOT WHINE ON IT 

These are light and gorgeous drawing that appear in an 18th century manuscript of the Haggadah, the script used on the Jewish holiday Passover, or Pesach.  

The central ceremony for the holiday is the Seder, a meal during which participants symbolically reenact (through food of course!) the story of the ancient Hebrews escape from Egyptian slavery. 

This remarkably well preserved manuscript features a colored cover with the high priest and Moses, prayers written to reference the seven-armed candelabra from the ancient Jewish temple, decorated images of scholars eating the Pascal sacrifice (brisket?), and King David with his harp. 

Illuminated Haggadah and Order for Services for Various Holidays, 1746, Germany, Manuscript, 1984.012

WE WERE ONCE SLAVES 

…But now we’re free. This is the message of Passover, the Jewish holiday celebrating the freedom of the Jews from Ancient Egypt.

These pages are from a 1945 Haggadah (Script for the Passover meal) and they speak specifically to the nature of slavery and freedom. They’re also stunning, sharp images. See more: CJH Catalogue Page
