Judaism: A world of stories
 
Jan
11

We went to see the current exhibition in the New Church. We thought it was fascinating. The richness of the artifacts and the thoughtful way in which they were displayed is delightful.

Here is what they say about the exhibition on their site:

17 December 2011 – 15 April 2012
In the winter of 2011-2012, De Nieuwe Kerk and the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam will present an exhibition about Judaism. With more than five hundred objects on display, this exhibition will tell the fascinating story of three thousand years of Jewish religion, culture, art and history, the chronicle of a world religion that takes diverse international forms but has always held onto its identity. The exhibits will come from internationally renowned museums and private collections, and most of them will be on display in the Netherlands for the first time. The absolute highlights will include a first-century Dead Sea Scroll from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the oldest complete Torah scroll, originally from Erfurt and now at the Staatsbibliothek in Berlin, valuable manuscripts, a painting by Chagall from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Alefbet Tapestry by the contemporary Russian-American artist Grisha Bruskin.
