About the Exhibition

Featuring changing displays of works from the Skirball’s permanent collection of Judaica—one of the largest in the world—this historically illuminating exhibition chronicles the struggles and achievements of the Jewish people over a span of four thousand years.

Travel through the many lands and civilizations where Jews have lived and discover how ancestral visions continue to shape modern values. The Visions and Values galleries—Beginnings, Journeys, Holidays, Lifecycle, Synagogue, Passage to America, Nation of Immigrants, Struggle and Opportunity, the Holocaust, the State of Israel, and At Home in America—take the visitor on an unforgettable voyage of learning and discovery.

“I am always awed by the Visions and Values exhibition.”

New Installation—Later in Life: Adult B’nai Mitzvah

Experience Later in Life: Adult B'nai Mitzvah, a Skirball-commissioned, multi-screen video installation by artist Sabrina Gschwandtner on view in Visions and Values. The project follows six Los Angeles adults—including the artist—as each prepares for and reflects upon their B’nai Mitzvah. Exploring what it means to perform this Jewish coming-of-age ritual as an adult, Later in Life highlights the importance of intergenerational connection, choosing one’s own family, and forging Jewish identity.
