Photo Exhibit At JCC

T

ie future of Jewish Monuments," a photographic exhibition
dedicated to the preservation of Jewish architecture and sites
worldwide, will be on view at the Maple-Drake Community
center from Feb. 6-27.
The exhibit, chaired by Larry and Sharon Berry, is organized
by the World Monuments Fund's Jewish Heritage Coun-
cil and co-sponsored by the Jewish Historical Society
and the Jewish Community Center, with the assistance
of Preservation Wayne.
The exhibition is the first to broadly address the state
of Jewish historic and artistic monuments, including
synagogues, cemeteries and Jewish quarters in larger
towns and cities. Included in the exhibition are pho-
tographs and descriptions of places of great antiquity,
artistic and architectural distinction, and historic and religious significance.
The exhibition focuses on the special problems confronting Jewish monuments, especially in Eastern Europe and North Africa, and
illustrates a wide range of preservation solutions and successful preservation efforts.
According to Samuel Gruber, director of the Jewish Heritage Council., "The traumatic events of this century that have so trans-
formed Jewish life have caused the destruction and neglect of most of the physical remains of the Jewish past. To protect this ft-re-
placeable heritage for the future, we must act now."
The opening reception for the exhibit will be 2-4 p.m. Feb. 6 Samuel Gruber will be the featured speaker at 2:30 p.m.
