Jewish Museum Exhibition Tour: Veiled Meanings

11:00am–1:00pm
1109 5th Avenue at 92nd Street
New York, NY 10128

We'll meet up with Queens College Hillel and Baruch College Hillel students at the Jewish Museum! This exhibition invites viewers to consider the language of clothing in all its complexity. Though this language can disclose information about gender, age, background, and custom, some important meanings remain vague and fluid. Clothing may accentuate or conceal; it may be transitory, but it may also be ageless and universal. These garments, dating primarily to the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, are drawn from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the repository of the most comprehensive collection of Jewish costume in the world.
