  • (Slide 1- Intro) Thank Anna Walters and her committee for organizing this meaningful conference, “She Creates,” Jewish Women in the Arts, the Hadassah Midwest Regional Council for inviting me to speak today, and my Mother, Sheila Dansinger, who is generously watching my son today--for making me a lifelong Hadassah member…. In the next 12 minutes I will be discussing the exhibition of Jewish art, prior to Israeli statehood and inclusion of Jewish art in museums. The purpose is to examine the social and political power of Jewish art on display during the time in which early Zionist agendas were important to Jews.
