Contemporary Jewish Museum presents:

Professor Rachel Gross on Jewish Law and Representation

Friday, October 6, 12:30pm-1:00pm, San Francisco


Professor Rachel Gross, the John & Marcia Goldman Professor of American Jewish Studies at San Francisco State University, looks at the fourth commandment: You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth and discusses how it has been interpreted in regards to representational visual art.

Dr. Rachel B. Gross is a scholar in religious studies whose work focuses on the lives, spaces, and objects of twentieth-century and contemporary American Jews. She has published scholarly articles on Jews and food and is currently working on a manuscript, entitled "Objects of Affection: The Material Religion of American Jewish Nostalgia." Professor Gross received her PhD in Religion from Princeton University.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition "The 613" by Archie Rand.
