An exhibit of stained glass artwork created for Ukrainian synagogues in the post-Soviet era is now on display in the Henry S. Miller Judaica Research Room on the 4th floor of the Walsh Library. Prof. Magda Teter opened the exhibit on September 10 on behalf of the Center for Jewish Studies at Fordham. It will remain on display until December 8.
The prints of the artwork, placed in conversation with Fordham undergraduate-curated Jewish illuminated manuscripts, also feature extensive gallery notes that reveal Eugeny Kotlyar’s artistic and religious influences. Through its design, the exhibit embraces the challenge of bringing Ukrainian scholarship and art to the United States, even in the midst of its war with Russia.
