Jean Bloch Rosensaft is assistant vice president for communications and public affairs at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion and curator of the traveling exhibition “Rebirth After the Holocaust: The Bergen-Belsen Displaced Persons Camp, 1945-1950” available through the HUC-JIR Museum.
Following World War II, many Jews were confined to displaced persons (DPs) camps in Allied-occupied countries. Among them were my parents and parents-in-law.
As the global language of humanity, numbers have been integral to Jewish life, rituals, belief, and history from antiquity to today. At a new exhibit, more than 50 contemporary artists explore numbers and their symbolic meanings through a range of media.
