YAD's night at the museum

Sixty members of the JCF's Young Adults Division (YAD) discovered new perspectives on Jewish history, art, music and ideas last week at the Contemporary Jewish Museum (CJM), one of San Fracnsico's premier  cultural institutions.

After mingling over wine and hor dourves the group explored the galleries, enjoying several of the latest exhibits, including:

Reclaimed: Paintings from the Collection of Jacques Goudstikker: Rarely-seen Old Master paintings reveal the legacy of a preeminent Jewish art dealer whose vast collection was looted by the Nazis.

Curious George Saves the Day: The Art of Margret and H.A. Rey Curious George, the impish monkey protagonist of many adventures, may never have seen the light of day if it were not for the determination and courage of his creators, the illustrator H. A. Rey and his wife, author and artist Margret Rey.

Black Sabbath: The Secret Musical History of Black-Jewish Relations: A musical journey through a unique slice of recording history–the Black-Jewish musical encounter from the 1930s to the 1960s.

The JCF and YAD plan to continue collaborating with the Contemporary Jewish Museum to connect our young adult Jewish communuty with each other and the cutting-edge cultural experiences the CJM has to offer. See all the pictures from the event or check the calendar for all of YAD's upcoming events.
