Description - The Jewish Wardrobe by Noam Bar'am-ben Yossef

The fashion, history and development of Jewish dress tells a story that spans the globe and crosses many cultures. In this colourful volume, Jewish communities - particularly those established for centuries in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa - are revealed through their garments. Stunning photographs spin tales of family traditions and religious devotion, with a special section dedicated to jewellery worn by brides and grooms. Superb photographs of specific garments, with many close-up details, are juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from The Israel Museum's archives to create a tapestry of a people revealed through textiles, costume, and images. More than 350 revelatory illustrations tell us how these precious articles of dress were originally worn. AUTHORS: Esther Juhasz teaches Jewish folklore at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and at Haifa University. Daisy Raccah-Djivre is curator of the Jewish Wardrobe project and chief curator of Jewish Art and Life at the Israel Museum. No'am Bar'am-Ben Yossef and Ester Muchawsky-Schnapper are curators, Alia Ben-Ami is collection manager, and Efrat Assaf-Shapira is assistant curator, all in the Wing for Jewish Art and Life at the Israel Museum. 350 colour images
