Signed in Silk: Introducing a Sacred Jewish Textile

When: Through Oct. 3, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.

In 2019 the Museum acquired this splendid Torah Ark Curtain (Parokhet), an 18th-century Italian tour de force of needlework and rich metallic embroidery on a shimmering azure-blue silk ground. This artwork is the centerpiece of and the inspiration for the exhibition Signed in Silk: Introducing a Sacred Jewish Textile, which brings together a selection of devotional textiles used in Jewish, Christian, and Muslim contexts as well as highly fashionable secular textiles made in or imported to Europe.
