Jewish life should be beautiful.
One of Mayyim Hayyim's seven founding principles is "Hiddur Mitzvah," which is the rabbinic teaching that Jewish life should be beautiful. Our art gallery is one of the ways we take this mandate seriously - and joyfully.
The Mayyim Hayyim gallery opened in January of 2006 with a juried show that featured 23 regional artists, who submitted work on the theme, "Everything Begins in the Water."
Since then, the gallery has hosted 20 art shows that have included a wide range of media, from pottery to video installation, photography to blown glass.
In the summer of 2008, we featured a one-woman show of bronzes by Nancy Schön, creator of the famous "Make Way for Ducklings" sculpture in the Boston Public Garden.
Mayyim Hayyim is a proud member of CAJM, the Council of American Jewish Museums.
The gallery is open by appointment only.

In Hilary Tolan's exhibit, “Floating World” the viewer enters a realm of manipulated landscapes. Photographs of dense forests are countered by ethereal drawings of trees and landscapes. Tolan invites the view to contemplate the power and beauty of trees and stones, the experience of looking deeply and slowly, and the natural order of decay and regeneration.
