Celebrating Heritage! August 2017

The Las Vegas Jewish Community, THEN AND NOW!

The Las Vegas Jewish Community is preparing a month-long exhibit celebrating both their historical and contemporary influences on northern New Mexico.
We are seeking information, photographs, Judaica, and individuals with connections to any of the following.  From the descendants of the crypto-Jews through the pioneer merchants and the first synagogue in the territory, up to and including the continuing contributions of today’s socially active residents, the Jewish community has left an enduring imprint.
The exhibit will include Judaica, historical photographs, art, story-telling, videos, and visual tours of the community.
The public is invited to the reception at 7:00 pm on Friday, August 4 at the Las Vegas Arts Council’s Gallery 140, at 140 Bridge Street that kicks off the community’s Heritage Week, themed Crossroads of Diversity.  The exhibit will then be open through August 30, from 1:00 – 4:00 pmTuesday through Saturdays.
Contact 425-1085 for more information.
