Course for Seniors on Jewish Art and Architecture
Four Wednesday afternoons in November and December
We are delighted to bring a program of lectures on “The Reflection of Jewish Culture in Art and Architecture” to Temple Beth Abraham. Each of the four lectures will focus on a different aspect of Judaism’s long history of influence on the world’s art and architecture, which will come alive under the expert guidance of Bruce J. Levy, AIA.
Sign up for all four lectures, or select the ones you are most interested in attending:
- November 9, Biblical/Classical/Byzantine Origins, 3000 BCE-600CE
- November 16 Medieval to 19th Century: Transition & Emancipation, 600CE-1900CE
- November 30 20th Century: Assimilation & Modern Architecture, 1900-1960
- December 7: Beyond the Synagogue: Memorials & Museums/Culture & Community
Your lecturer, Bruce J. Levy, AIA, is an architect in private practice in New York. He also teaches History of Architecture and in particular The Art & Architecture of Jewish Culture, which deals with the history of synagogues, Jewish memorials, museums and individual Jewish artists and architects. http://bjlaarchitecture.com/bruce-levy-resume.html
This course is brought to us through a grant from the US Department of Health and Services Office on Aging to the WCC Mainstream Program. The goal is to provide cultural enrichment to seniors over 60, but younger people can attend, if space permits. This event is free, but you need to register.
