ANY WAY THE WIND BLOWS… IT WON’T SNUFF OUT THIS CHANUKAH LIGHT!
Is  it a lunch box?  A puzzle box?  No, it’s a Hanukkah lamp that shields  the candle flames from the wind.  Much jazzier than the brass boxes  found outside many homes in Israel.

GRAPHIC DETAILS IN VOGUE… BRASIL!
Sadly, nobody at YUM is proficient in Portuguese.  But we are elated that this story ran in Vogue Brasil.  Apparently, Graphic Details has stirred a great bit of interest down south, and this article is just one example of it.  Kudo’s to YUM!

PAROCHET?  ‘CZECH’ OUT YUM’S NEWEST EXHIBITION: OLD AND THE NEW - MARK PODWAL’S TEXTILES FOR THE ALTNEUSCHUL IN PRAGUE
November 27, 2011 - January 15, 2012 (Special sneak-preview week starting November 20th)
Prague’s Altneuschul (Old-New Synagogue), the world’s oldest operating  synagogue, is celebrated through numerous legends and for its  architectural beauty.  Constructed in 1270, the synagogue is a place of  worship and community activity, and a symbol of Czech-Jewish identity.   Mark Podwal, an internationally recognized New York-based artist, was  commissioned to design new textiles for the sanctuary. Embroidered in  shimmering gold thread on rich velvet, the textiles reflect the  traditions and mythology of the Altneuschul and one of the world’s most  vibrant Jewish communities.  Yeshiva University Museum is privileged to  unveil the textiles before they are sent to Prague to be formally  dedicated and installed. They are complemented by a selection of the  artist’s earlier graphic works.

You may wonder where we’ve been.  Answer: Installing the soon-to-open elegant exhibition on new textiles just made for the oldest operating synagogue in the world.  Heard of the Golem?  Yeah, it’s in there.  Heard of 700 years old?  Yep, this synagogue is that old.
This image is one of several murals that the artist drew on the gallery walls.  Truly spectacular.

FROM BUZZINE: Funny Jewish Female Art on Display

REGARDING "Is Jewish Museum Boom Good?" from the Baltimore Jewish Times

Oh dear, this is certainly food for thought from our vantage point as a small Jewish art museum.  On one hand, nobody does the kind of work that we do.  On the other hand, there are at least 4 other Jewish museums of one sort or another in this town.  …  Still, every museum brings a new approach, a new articulation, and a special message that adds to our great communal discourse.  So perhaps there’s never anything wrong with any type of museum boom.  Then again, how to pay for it all?
