Shalom Sabar, who was previously a visiting professor to the University of Washington and a Beth Shalom member, is rejoining us from Israel on Zoom to teach about  the Hanukkah lamp in history, with special emphasis on Zionist and Israeli lamps from his collection. 

Shalom Sabar, author of Ketubbah: The Art of the Jewish Marriage Contract was born in neo-Aramaic speaking Kurdish-Jewish community in Zakho, Iraq.  He studied art history and related fields at the Hebrew University and UCLA, where he earned his PhD on the illustrated Ketubbah (marriage contract) in the life of Italian Jews during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. His research joins together the disciplines of art history, Jewish history, and folklore highlighting issues such as the folk nature of Jewish art and Jewish material culture, visual materials and objects associated with rituals in the life and year cycles, and the evidence these materials provide about Jewish daily life and the relationships between the Jewish minorities and the societies that hosted them in Christian Europe and the Islamic East.
