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
