Using "Art" to heal in the Journey back to self and rediscovering tribe 
When an exhibit travels to a different venue, amazing and unforseen things can happen.  Join Carol for her talk about Art, Venue, and Convergence.  Born in Newark with generations before her making Newark their home, what does it mean to connect to home?  How does moving art to a sacred space change the conversation?  In these times of social unrest, what does reconnecting to tribe mean.

Closing Reception

A Convergence in Newark:

Personal Reflections on a Lost Jewish Community from a Daughter of Weequahic

Join Carol Cohn, the oldest daughter of an enthusiastic 1947 Weequahic Alum, as she tells her personal stories of the Newark she knew.  Born in Newark, a longtime member of Temple B'nai Jeshurun, Carol's maternal and fraternal grandparents made Newark their home for years.  They and her extended family shared so many wonderful tales from the city from a time when nearly one-quarter of Newarkers were Jewish.  Come see the exhibit "Rising From the Ashes" and share your memories of old Jewish Newark and Weequahic.
