WRS Presents The Contemporary Jewish Museum: Tikkun For the Cosmos, the Community, and Ourselves 

Join the Women of Rodef Sholom in a virtual tour of The Contemporary Jewish Museum's Tikkun: For the Cosmos, the Community, and Ourselves exhibit, which presents works by thirty Bay Area–based contemporary artists reflecting on the Jewish concept of tikkun (Hebrew for “to repair”). In a moment of collective challenges and uncertainty, the exhibition rexamines the term tikkun as a phenomenom of care and interconnectedness that is grounded in personal action, environmental responsibility, and community, unfixed from its evolving meanings throughout history. Taken together, the works in this exhibition consider how the concept of tikkun can help us look critically both inward and outward, guide us through change, and build resilience for the ongoing work of repair.

Tikkun: For the Cosmos, the Community, and Ourselves is the twelfth iteration of The Dorothy Saxe Invitational, The Contemporary Jewish Museum's longest running exhibition commitment, endowed in Dorothy's name by her late husband George Saxe z"l.  Historically, The Dorothy Saxe Invitational has invited contemporary artists to contribute original works that respond to a specific Jewish ritual object. In recent years, it has broadened to explore themes related to Jewish ideas and cultural practice.

All artworks on view in this exhibition are for sale. Proceeds will benefit the artists and the CJM's mission and exhibition programming. View the price list here. Please note that artwork sales are completed at the close of the exhibition after January 8, 2023. For more information about The Contemporary Jewish Museum, visit their website.
