Don’t miss our newest art exhibit at The Braid
The third installment of THINGS WE PASS DOWN looks at objects of Judaica that are obtained from family members before and “passed on” to the next generation. In this show, Marilee Tolwin exhibits beautiful paintings of Judaic ritual objects. Also displayed are heirlooms and their stories. Some new art objects are being sold – new Judaica to be given to the next generation.
