Amy’s work, Miriam’s Cup I, was featured by the Jewish Museum this April. A major bulletin in their April 8th newsletter, “The Jewish Museum from Home: Women in the Passover Story,” they elaborated on the details of her work further in the article “Welcoming ‘Guests,’ Old and New, at the Passover Seder: Elijah, Miriam, and an Orange.” The museum also highlighted the object in their virtual-audio collection. One of the recordings from their page is shared above.

The newsletter can be read here, the article can be found on Medium here, and the virtual collection can be viewed and listened to here. Below are text excerpts:

From “The Jewish Museum from Home: Women in the Passover Story” April 8th, 2020 Newsletter

Listen to the festive sounds of cymbals on this Miriam Cup by artist Amy Klein Reichert, which convey the symbolic appearance of the prophet Miriam’s music, and hear the artist speak on the inspiration for the work.

From “Welcoming ‘Guests,’ Old and New, at the Passover Seder: Elijah, Miriam, and an Orange.”

by Abigail Rapoport, Curator of Judaica, and Claudia Nahson, Morris and Eva Feld Senior Curator

“Miriam’s cup is a restless vessel, like her ancient well accompanying the people of Israel along their journey. It is heard as well as seen, its cymbals dancing in response to the slightest vibration of the table.”
