The Jewish Wardrobe: From the Collection of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem
Edited by Esther Juhasz
A visually stunning presentation of the Israel Museum’s unparalleled collection of Jewish dress from communities all around the world. Reflecting original scholarly research by Esther Juhasz of the Hebrew University, who worked together with senior ethnography curator No’am Bar’am Ben-Yossef to produce this volume, the book examines aspects of identity – integration and segregation; tradition, transition, and innovation – and the impact of widespread migration, alongside questions such as the ritual requirements governing Jewish dress. Some 140 sumptuous pictures of garments by artist-photographer Mauro Magliani, juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from the Museum’s archive, attest to individual and communal taste while offering a source of inspiration for fashion designers today. Joining these images to detailed texts, The Jewish Wardrobe will serve as lasting resource for scholars and enthusiasts alike.SHOW MORE
