About

The Cincinnati Skirball Museum of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion is seeking volunteers for its docent program. Docents give tours to museum visitors of all ages. No prior experience is necessary, and new docents will receive training. Interested individuals of all faiths are welcome to inquire. Abby Schwartz, Director of the Cincinnati Skirball Museum, noted, "The museum's collection focuses on the history of Jewish life and culture from ancient times to the present, and includes sections on immigration, Cincinnati Jewish history, holidays, ritual, archeology, the Holocaust, and modern Israel."

The next Skirball Museum special exhibition will be Rembrandt and the Jews. The opening of the Berger Print Collection exhibition will be Sunday, March 5 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the museum. Organized by the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art in Santa Barbara, California, this exhibition features 22 Rembrandt etchings of Jewish and biblical subjects and a drawing by Pieter Lastman, Rembrandt’s teacher. Also on view will be two Rembrandt etchings from the B’nai B’rith Klutznick collection of the Cincinnati Skirball Museum.
