Jews have historically embraced the physical dimension of human existence by sanctifying its mundane aspects. And due to the frequency of Jewish migration, Jews have imbued portable objects rather than stationary ones with significance. Rabbi Dr. Shira Lander, a Temple member, Senior Lecturer and Director of Jewish Studies at Southern Methodist University, will teach a three-session class on dimensions of Jewish material culture, including ritual objects, visual art and food.
