Jews and Christians who lived in the ancient world did more than read and interpret they Bible. They lived it.  In this lecture, we will explore the various ways in which Jews and Christians encountered the book of Psalms outside of the often-polemical context of biblical interpretation. We will “go on the ground” and explore various forms of pious practice into which both Jewish and Christian enmeshed the Psalms.  We will also discuss how and why these patterns of religious expression often converge and then diverge, which will showcase the shared—but disputed—religious worlds that ancient Jews and early Christians inhabited.

Artist Susan Ribnick brought together 36 mosaic artists from around the world to create works that react and respond to the Tree of Life Congregation shooting in Pittsburgh, PA on October 27, 2018. Eleven people were killed and six were wounded in the white supremacist terrorist mass shooting, the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States. The 36 mosaics in the exhibition evoke themes ranging from antisemitism and injustice to hope, resilience, and peace.

Artist Mark Podwal creates imaginative and inventive interpretations of woodcuts from a 16th-century Sefer Minhagim (Book of Customs). Complementing Podwal’s 26 archival prints are a selection of Sefrei Minhagim from the Klau Library of HUC-JIR, as well as ritual objects from the Skirball’s collection that relate to images in the exhibition.

*A Collage of Customs: Iconic Jewish Woodcuts Revised from the Twenty-First Century includes images of the prints and their sources as well as insightful accompanying text by the artist. The book, published by HUC Press, is available with a donation of $18 to the Skirball Museum.

Sunday, December 19, 2021 | 1:00 PM | Holocaust & Humanity Center

You might ask yourself, “What would I have done during the Holocaust?” Instead, ask yourself what you can do right now.

Join the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center for a special Upstander Museum Tour at historic Union Terminal. During this 45-minute tour, you will learn about the upstanders who risked their lives to save Jews during the Holocaust.  You will then explore the Humanity Gallery, exploring the stories of individuals who have activated their character strengths to make a difference and impacting change in our world today.

This tour is designed specifically for families with children.

Upstanders are individuals who stand up for others and their rights. They fight against injustice and unfairness, and they use their character strengths to inspire action and become the best of humanity today. Learn more about THE CINCY UPSTANDER PROJECT before your visit.

GET YOUR TICKETS. The guided tour is FREE when you purchase one general admission ticket per person.

The Holocaust Speaker Series, held each Wednesday at 11:00 am, features Holocaust survivors and descendants of survivors sharing stories of life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Join us on Wednesday, December 15 at 11:00 am via Zoom with Dan Hurley.

Cincinnati’s beloved Dan Hurley shares stories about his father during World War II and his quest to uncover his father’s story, a white officer with an all African American company that was led by a Jewish Captain in the heart of the home of the Nazi movement. Hurley is writing a book about the hundreds of letters his father sent to his mother during the war.

You have likely seen Dan Hurley in the community through his previous roles as a reporter and host on Local 12 WKRC-TV and WVXU-FM, as the Cincinnati Museum Center’s Assistant Vice President for History and Research, Interim President of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, Director of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber’s Leadership Cincinnati program, and as the founder of Applied History Associates. Hurley is also the author of Cincinnati: The Queen City. HHC is thrilled to welcome him to a Zoom conversation.

In an era of political polarization and often vitriolic public discourse, educational institutions are uniquely positioned to create countercultures in which civil discourse can thrive. In this session, we’ll explore what civil discourse can look and sound like in educational institutions and consider what educators can do to create cultures in which it is possible to disagree, with mutual respect and compassion, about key issues facing our society.
Dr. Sivan Zakai, Sara S. Lee Associate Professor of Jewish Education, will lead this lecture.
