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?
Pendant. Bernstein Bernard, 20th century, silver. Collection of Yeshiva University Museum (2008, 128). Gift of Bernard Bernstein.

MLK “A true brotherhood of man … in our nation”
In June 1964 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. answered a letter from Paula Pappenheim drawing similarities between the struggle for freedom and equality for African Americans and Jews.  King entreated Pappenheim to join the struggle to inspire a spirit of connection and humanity among all Americans, if not throughout the world.

CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF HANUKKAH 
Ok, it’s been nearly a month since the Festival of Lights concluded, but we just can’t help ourselves, what with the smell of latkes STILL infusing the walls and furniture. 
This unique Hanukkah lamp, made out of iron, can be seen as not quite kosher with its non-linear alignment of the eight candle holders, however, its interesting curvatures and minimaslic approach is quite enduring.

This postcard includes four children, two boys and two girls, blowing white horns. The Yiddish on the postcard translates to:

A children’s band
They toot and blast
Greetings they bear
Blessings they offer
And New Year’s wishes
Any takers out there?”

RECORD ALBUM MOSAIC … THE JEWISH KIND!
At the entrance to YUM’s exhibition Jews on Vinyl you’ll find a fantastic, floor-to-ceiling mosaic comprised of gorgeous  record albums covers.  Some from familiar songsters of the 1950s and  1960s, and others a bit more esoteric, illustrate the incredible impact  of Jewish folk music on American popular music in the 20th century.  The  exhibition runs through January 15th, so get yourself over to YUM  before it closes.
