Art at Mayyim Hayyim

Jewish life should be beautiful.

One of Mayyim Hayyim’s seven founding principles is Hiddur Mitzvah, 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.”

The gallery has since hosted over 40 exhibits, featuring local artists like Nancy Schön, creator of the famous “Make Way for Ducklings” sculpture. The exhibits have featured various media, from pottery to video installation, photography to blown glass.

Mayyim Hayyim is a proud member of CAJM, the Council of American Jewish Museums.

The gallery is open by appointment only. Please e-mail gallery@mayyimhayyim.org or call 617-244-1836, ext. 211.
