An exhibit made celebrating Vermont Jewish Women will be on display at the Vermont’s History Museum in Montpelier January 14 – March 31. Eighteen large panels depicting the life stories of 20 Jewish women from all walks of life, ages 12 to 101, who live and work in communities from Brattleboro to St. Johnsbury, Burlington to Andover, and Rutland to Woodstock will be on display. Each woman’s story is illustrated with a large photographic portrait, archival photos, an essay, and selected quotes and anecdotes in the women’s own words.
There will be an opening reception on Thursday, January 14th from 4:30 pm – 6:30 pm with the exhibit creators — Ann Buffum and Sandra Gartner — as well as some of their subjects. The reception will also celebrate the Vermont Women’s History Project as it passes from the Vermont’s Commission on Women to its new home at the Vermont Historical Society.
