Museum to host events linked to wedding exhibit
July 1st, 2012
The Jewish Museum Milwaukee’s current exhibit, “Mazel Tov! A Celebration of Jewish Weddings,” continues through July 31. During that month, the museum will feature three events associated with the exhibit.
On Thursday, July 5, JMM will show “Match & Marry,” a 2007 film which takes an outsider’s look at the long-standing tradition of Jewish matchmaking in the Orthodox community. The film will be presented at 7 p.m. and followed by a talkback with Devorah L. and Rabbi Shmaya Shmotkin.
On Thursday, July 12, 7 p.m., the 2012-2013 collaboration between the JMM, the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center, and the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre will begin with “A Midsummer Night’s Preview.”
MCT staff and guest performers will offer dramatic readings from three plays, all by Jewish playwrights, that form the focus of next season’s “Exploring Jewish Voices” program. (See longer story on page xx.)
On Tuesday, July 31, 11 a.m., Henry Sapoznik — klezmer musician, author, five-time Emmy nominee, and executive director of the Mayrent Institute for Yiddish Culture at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Mosse/Weinstein Center for Jewish Studies — will present “Yiddish Culture and Music.”
All programs are held at the museum, 1360 N. Prospect Ave. Admission is free for museum members and $5 for non-members. To learn more, call 414-390-5730 or email email@example.com.
