What:  ”Numbers are integral to Jewish rituals, belief, significant historical dates, and daily life. Numbers and numerology have been at the core of Biblical understanding since the Bible was codified and possibly before. Inescapable, numbers are the global language of humanity. More than fifty contemporary artists illuminate the meaning of numbers and their symbolism through a broad range of artistic media.” So reads the description from the event organizers about a new exhibit, “Paint by Numbers,” which celebrates its opening with an artists reception. 

Where: Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Museum. One West Fourth Street between Broadway and Mercer Street, New York, New York, USA. 

When: Thursday, September 8, 2016. 6:00-8:00 pm with a program beginning at 7:00 pm. Register here.
