REUVEN RUBIN’S EARLY TEL AVIV REVIEW
This picture depicts Tel Aviv just a few years—seemingly moments—after its founding in the early 20th century.  One of the founders of the Jerusalem school of primitivistic painting, Rubin depicted “the East” as a young, vibrant, and even naive place—in contrast to the cold, gray Europe.
Rubin initially came to Palestine in 1912 to study at the Bezalel school.  He moved permanently to Eretz Israeli in 1934 after studying art in Paris and Berlin.  From 1948 - 1952 he was Israel’s plenipotentiary to Romania and in 1952 represented Israel at the Venice Bienniale.

SQUIGGLES EVERYWHERE! - FROM THE MAX STERN COLLECTION, PART 5
This squiggly image is part of a silver spice box in YU Museum’s dazzling Max Stern Collection of Judaica.   Spice boxes are a typical and often decorated form of Judaica  sculpture. They are used during Hazdalah, the ceremony that marks the end  of the Sabbath, and the fragrant spices in the box help to rouse our  souls as we transition into what Elvis Costello referred to as the  “Working Week.”

WE ALL LOVE ACCESSORIES 
Decorations and accessories have been in the human world for quite some time. What makes one accessory stand out more than the other is the creativity put into the piece. This pendant displays two motifs shared in Jewish and other artistic styles: the dove and the hamsa, both signs of peace.
What do you think the significance of placing the dove and a hamsa on top of one another in a single image?
