Yiddish Third Peysakh Seder: A Rememberance of the 1950’s-60’s Event at the Morrison Hotel

During the 1950's and 60's children in Yiddish Schools in Chicago came to Terrace Casino of Morrison Hotel to celebrate a Third Peysakh Seder with beautiful songs and recitations. Poetry of Avrom Reisen and I.L. Peretz was set to music by Mikhel Gelbart and Lazar Weiner. The story of Peysakh was told through music with Yiddish versions of Ekhod Mi Yodea, Dayenu and Khad Gadyoh. Morrison Hotel was torn down in 1964, but memories of the Third Seders linger on. Mameloshn has adapted Yiddish Naye Hagode Shel Peysach (New Haggadah of Passover) originally published by Workmen's Circle to bring you a unique and joyous evening. Please join us for a musical evening, a glezel veyn (a glass of wine) and Peysakh pastries.

Closing Reception of Levan Stepanyan: Investigating the Mundane

Due to popular demand and new acquisitions, Levan Stepanyan: Investigating the Mundane will be extended through April 27! Join us on Friday, April 18 from 5-8 pm for the exhibit's closing reception, featuring several new additions by the accomplished Georgian-Israeli painter. Levan Stepanyan grew up among artists in Old Tbilisi in Georgia. In 1994, political turmoil forced the artist to immigrate with his family to Israel, where he became a prominent figure in painting and design. Stepanyan’s characters exist in introspective isolation and interact without connecting—a wary and insightful prediction of societal self-centeredness, a disintegration of personal attachment. For more information, call 312-787-4640.

2014 David Kipper Ancient Israel Lecture

"New Light on the Biblical Philistines: A Recent Study on the Frenemies of Ancient Israel" - Aren M. Maeir Professor, Bar-Ilan University The Philistines are well known from biblical texts as one of the main adversaries of the ancient Israelites. At the same time, the biblical narrative indicates that other types of interactions were also the norm. Recent excavations in Philistia have provided exciting evidence of the very complex interaction between these two cultures, revealing the multi-layered facets of what could be termed a Frenemy relationship between the Philistines and Israelites. In addition, recent finds have changed our understanding of who the Philistines were and how their culture formed, transformed, and disappeared.
