Event Time and Date

Monday, March 13 2017, 1:00 PM to Friday, March 31 2017, 5:00 PM

In celebration of Jewish Cultural Month at Virginia Tech, the Malcolm Rosenberg Hillel Center will host an exclusive viewing of Salvador Dali’s Aliyah Suite, a set of 25 photo-lithographs commissioned by Samuel Shore in 1968 to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the state of Israel. The prints offer a striking depiction of the Holocaust and the circumstances that led to the birth of the modern Jewish state, and an introductory letter by David Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli prime minister, accompanies the collection.

Aliyah, at its root, means "ascent." It is used to describe going up steps, or climbing a mountain. In a modern sense, the word aliyah is synonymous with a commitment to the rebirth of the Jewish people, to the renaissance of Jewish spirit. It is a call to action--to not just look inward to understand the Jewish narrative, but to make a positive imprint on it. 

Aliyah Suite is available for public viewing at the Malcolm Rosenberg Hillel Center during the month of March on Mondays through Fridays from 1:00PM to 5:00PM.
