As part of the Keepers of Jewish Excellence series, Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple will be holding a traveling exhibit from April 17 – May 15 called “Fabric of Survival,” which is photographic images of a collection of 36 tapestries created by Esther Nisenthal Krinitz about her life before, during and after the Holocaust.
The exhibit is run by Art and Remembrance, a non-profit organization that uses art and personal narrative to recognize individual courage and resilience, and to foster understanding and compassion for those who experience injustice.
The exhibit’s opening event will be held on April 17 at Anshe Emeth and will feature a presentation by Krinitz’s daughters, Bernice Steinhardt and Helene McQuade. The sisters will give a brief introduction to the exhibit, followed by a screening of “Through the Eye of the Needle.” Q&A will follow and light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit will be on display at the temple, 222 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. Contact the temple for hours and special tours.
