Explore highlights of the Derfner Judaica Museum + Art Collection, with a focus on the ongoing exhibition Tradition and Remembrance: Treasures of the Derfner Judaica Museum. The exhibition explores the intersections of Jewish history and tells the story of art and objects used in traditional Jewish practice in light of the role memory plays in shaping both individual and communal identities. Among the
featured objects are a parcel-gilt filigree case for an Esther Scroll from Ionnina, Greece, read on the Purim holiday, and a hand-drawn
marriage contract from Hamadan, Persia.
