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.

In the JCC’s 2nd floor art gallery hallway. Free.

 


 

 Knitzvah - 10th Anniversary
