This enamel pen, recently donated to YU Museum, bears the name of the fur trading firm Jacobson & Kupitsky, active in China in the first half of the 20th century. The beautiful, detailed decoration is a far cry from today’s souvenir pens.
YUM’s Summer Gala and Exhibition Opening on June 25th will be a fun (shmita-themed) evening with exhibitions, gallery talks, music – and lots of delicious food and drink. Dara Horn will be the keynote; there will a wonderful musical performance within our synagogue model exhibition; and you’ll get to take in our brand-new exhibition, Fields of Dreams: Living Shmita in the Modern World. We hope to see you there. RSVP Robyn Hartman at email@example.com or 212-960-5468.
