Jews of Color: A Renaissance
July 12th-September 12th

Ten large canvasses by Oakland painter Sam Renaissance, paired with Bryan Schwartz’s photos from the “Jews of Color” exhibition that inspired them. Each takes a fresh approach to the question of diversity. Mr. Renaissance, who himself is African-American and not Jewish, was captivated by the photographs’ challenge to stereotypes both of Jews and of communities of color, and hopes the exhibit will create a new paradigm in art and in people’s thinking about religion and race.


Scattered Among the Nations: A Celebration of Jewish Diversity
Sunday, August 7th – Save the Date

This event is still in the planning stages--more details will be coming soon. We can tell you that Bryan Schwartz, the photographer whose photos inspired the paintings will be here to give a presentation on his project and to sign books. In addition, Jay Sand will be performing children's music from around the world; and there will be other activities as well.
