From Sacred to Secular: Collecting and Caring for Judaica

Location: Hillel
Dates: Fall 2011–Fall 2012



In this exhibition, Emily Carambelas ’11 considers how museums balance their mission with religious instructions regarding the preservation, interpretation, and display of sacred objects. Jewish tradition offers strict guidelines regarding the use and treatment of Judaica at different points in objects’ lifecycles. As the third annual Sonneborn Collection Curatorial Intern, Emily researched and assembled objects from the Henry Sonneborn Collection. The exhibition will be on display for a year at Hillel.
