A Big Mazel Tov To UCB

Posted By Cassie Myers On Jul 5, 2010 @ 12:02 pm In Arts | Comments Disabled


This is a story for insatiable museum fanatics (in case our campus didn’t have enough museums already). About 10,000 “objects and documents” that lived in the Judah L Magnes Museum are now migrating [1] to the UC Berkeley campus.¬†These objects will set up shop in downtown Berkeley “adjacent to the campus” and join the UC Berkeley Jewish Studies program in the new building.

And just what are these mysterious objects? The Holy Grail’s probably out, so what have we got? Well, let’s start with “an ornate 17th century Torah ark from Cochin, India, painted in red, green and gold” and move on from there to ¬†”a 1938 architectural drawing of a school from Soviet Jewish architect Lazar Khidekel.” Plus much, much more.

The museum is set to open fall 2011, and since this move was made to make these treasures more accessible, we suggest you access it ASAP.
