Veiled Meanings: Jewish Dress from the Israeli Museum Collection

The extraordinary range of textile designs and clothing in the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s exhibit “Veiled Meanings: Fashioning Jewish Dress” illuminates the story of how diverse global cultures have thrived, interacted and inspired each other for centuries. Honoring Jewish communities from Afghanistan to Yemen, the exhibit represents excellent examples of Jewish diasporic textiles and offers an incisive and compelling examination of diversity and migration through the lens of fashion.
