For some, Jewish ceremonial objects are an essential part of life's rituals, while others simply like displaying items like a mezuza, a menorah or a spice box for its aesthetic beauty. 

Renowned Judaica artist and metalsmith Frann Addison will explain the cultural history behind some of these ritual objects and how they evolved in different countries. Her 50-minute presentation with photographs will help you connect to a rich Jewish heritage where rituals are celebrated around family and the home.
