‘One Nation,’ an Exhibit About American Identity
In “Echad (One),” artist Alan Falk imagines Americans united by a desire for peace and justice (left); artist Miriam Stern’s “Pekelakh” (bundles) is a reference to the Exodus and the baggage of oppression that Jews and others carried in their wanderings. Both paintings are on display through July, part of the “One Nation” exhibit at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion’s Heller Museum in New York City.
Harriet Glasman says
I really appreciate Hadassah magazine presenting articles about Jews by birth who are also practicing Jews and who have raised Jewish children and married Jews. It is so refreshing! I enjoyed reading the article by Alex Borstein. She is a proud Jewish mother and actor who actually plays a Jewish character and one of only a few actors in the show playing Jews who are really Jewish. I quit watching the show because the non Jewish actors portraying Jews were so exaggerated and wrong, except for Alex.
