In this presentation by The CJM staff, learn about two gorgeous exhibitions. We’ll explore a variety of Jewish ritual objects, featured in Radiant Practices: Illuminating Jewish Traditions, that highlight the foundational role of light in Jewish life and ritual, historically and today. Additionally, journey through First Light: Rituals of Glass and Neon Art to experience how artists use neon art making as a form of spiritual practice and identity expression, along with the processes of creating light through neon.

Contemporary Jewish Museum Since its founding in 1984, The Contemporary Jewish Museum (The CJM) has distinguished itself as a welcoming place where visitors can connect with one another through dialogue and shared experiences with the arts. Ever changing, The CJM is a non-collecting institution that partners with national and international cultural institutions to present exhibitions that are both timely and relevant and represent the highest level of artistic achievement and scholarship.
