MAY 16 - JUNE 2, 2018

A mosaic of eras and lands, generations and deserts, hats and books, clarinets and bread, people lost and people searching, angry young women, sad old men, angels, history, memory, and imagination.

With its multigenerational landscape and kaleidoscopic journey across Jewish history and culture, A People asks: What is my relationship to those who came before me? And are we–is anyone–still a people?
