Event description

Description

There is a belief in Judaism that worship should be fulfilled with beautiful objects, sounds and delicious food. The principle of enhancing a biblical commandment through aesthetics is called Hiddur Mitzvah. Through the ages, when budgets would allow it, Jewish people have looked at silver as their preferred material for such objects. It’s perceived value, reflective qualities and decorative possibilities add to its ceremonial use. This talk will trace Judaica production of key British-based silversmiths from the 17th century to the present day. The talk will highlight that while Judaica follows specific guidelines, incorporating stylistic trends has always been part of its material production.

Tea, coffee and Rugelach will be served from 9.30am, and the lecture will begin promptly at 10am. Please note you will need a valid ticket for Goldsmiths' Fair to attend the talk.
