Take a closer look at highlights from the MFA’s new Judaica gallery and learn the stories behind them. Almost every work of art in “Intentional Beauty: Jewish Ritual Art from the Collection” is a recent acquisition on display at the museum for the very first time. Who created these objects and why? Who owned them? What do they tell us about Jewish life? From a Yemenite women’s headdress and an Indian Haggadah to a Venetian Renaissance textile and a Torah ark from Chelsea, Massachusetts, these works express the extraordinary diversity of Jewish cultures and customs.

With Simona Di Nepi, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Curator of Judaica at the MFA Boston.
