"Accumulations: Hanukkah Lamps"

(Oct. 12, 2018-Feb.9, 2020) — The Jewish Museum is presenting "Accumulations: Hanukkah Lamps,"  featuring over 80 Hanukkah lamps representing four continents and six centuries of artistic production.

One of seven sections that make up the Jewish Museum’s third floor collection exhibition, "Scenes from the Collection," “Accumulations” draws from The Jewish Museum’s collection of Chanukah lamps, the largest in the world at nearly 1,050 pieces.

The selection of lamps on view range in date from the Renaissance to Thanksgiving 2013, when Chanukah and Thanksgiving coincided, and originated in North America, Europe, Asia and Africa. They are made of such materials as silver, copper, steel, tin, pewter, lead, glass, wood, clay, aluminum, concrete and silicone.

The exhibition is organized by Susan L. Braunstein, Senior Curator, The Jewish Museum.
