Household, Halakhah, Haggadah. Family Life and Religious Authority at the Passover Seder

The Taube Family Arthur Szyk Collection comprises hundreds of artworks, sketches, illustrated books, and archival documents created between two world wars and documenting the rise of totalitarianism in Europe. Szyk’s work touches on motifs drawn from the Bible, history, politics, and culture to pair extraordinary craftsmanship with searing commentary on a diverse range of subjects including Judaism, the American War of Independence, the Second World War, the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel. The Magnes curatorial staff is currently cataloging this enormous collection, and the materials will soon be made accessible to the public.

In conjunction with the cataloging process, made possible by a generous gift from Taube Philanthropies, The Magnes is inviting Berkeley scholars to share their expertise and take part in the broad project of researching the many connections elicited by this multifaceted collection. In the course of the 2018-2019 academic year, historians, art historians, Media, and Jewish Studies scholars will present insightful research and commentary Around Arthur Szyk.
