Women, Art & Identity


March 19, 2023    
2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Sisterhood at The Contemporary Dayton on March 19th for a look at three living Jewish women artists.  We will take an in-depth, contemplative look at the large-scale home interiors by Becky Suss and dialogue about memory, home and the role of Jewish women in creating both.  Do you have memories of your mother or grandmother’s home?  How have you or they created a “Jewish” home? What do you want to pass on to the next generation about creating a “Jewish” home?  Together, we will explore the diversity of possible answers to the question of what elements (ritual objects, emotions, values, etc.) make a home “Jewish”.  Ending with an experiential artwork by Elyssa Wortzman, we will create a spiritual web of interconnectivity surrounding the idea of “home”.  

We welcome inter-generational families as well, so please bring daughters (above 12 years old) or mothers.

Please RSVP to .   This is a free event.
