CHATHAM SYNAGOGUE TO CELEBRATE LEGACY OF MARC CHAGALL

7.7.08
Marc Chagallís Granddaughter Discusses Jewish and Christian Symbolism in Her Grandfatherís Work




Throughout his career, Marc Chagall, one of the most significant painters and graphic artists of the 20th century, accepted commissions from both synagogues and churches, portraying flying rabbis and crucifixes with equal ease in his signature style, and often within the same painting. On Sunday, July 20th at 2 p.m., The Chatham Synagogue Netivot Torah is pleased to present a rare opportunity to hear Chagall's granddaughter, art historian Bella Meyer, in a talk and accompanying slide presentation exploring Jewish and Christian symbolism in Chagall's art. The event will be held at St. James Church in Chatham.



Meyer, a Spencertown resident and member of The Chatham Synagogue, was born in Paris and raised in Switzerland in a creative environment heavily influenced by her grandfather. As a child and young woman, she would sit easel-side to Chagall as he created his extraordinary paintings at his home in the south of France. Meyer, who obtained a Ph.D. in Medieval Art History from the Sorbonne and has worked for the Visual Arts Cultural Services at the French Embassy, has taught art history, written academic papers, and lectures extensively on Marc Chagallís work throughout the world.



The Chatham Synagogue Netivot Torah, founded in 1999, is located in the hamlet of Chatham Center. In addition to providing a spiritual home to its members, it offers a full slate of cultural programming, including films and lectures, throughout the year. These events are open to the public.



Seating is limited for Ms. Meyer's deeply personal and professional perspective on the work of her eminent grandfather. Tickets for this event are $15 and may be purchased at the Chatham Bookstore, at the office of St. James Church, at the door, or by sending a check for $15 per ticket made out to The Chatham Synagogue to The Chatham Synagogue, Box 51, Chatham, NY 12037. For more information about the event and the synagogue, including directions, please visit www.chathamsynagogue.org or call 392-0701.




Rabbi Discusses Chagall's "Hometown"




On Friday, July 18th at 6:30 p.m. at The Chatham Synagogue Netivot Torah in Chatham Center, Rabbi Michael Farbman of Washington Hebrew Congregation in Washington D.C., will speak about Vitebsk, the city in Belarus that was the home and inspiration of Marc Chagall, one of the 20th century's greatest artists. Rabbi Farbman, himself a native of Vitebsk, will discuss fiddlers on the roof, blue cows, and other real and imagined aspects of Russian life that feature in Chagall's work.



The Synagogue welcomes the public to this event, which will follow a brief musical Kabbalat Shabbat Sabbath evening service led by Rabbi Farbman at 6 pm. There is no admission fee. For more information about the event and the synagogue, including directions, please visit www.chathamsynagogue.org or call 392-0701.

It was an honor and a privilege to meet Ms. Meyer and to be a part of such an educational and rewarding event.
I could have listened to Ms. Meyer for many more hours, and I hope to have the opportunity in the near future to do just that!
Seeing Chagall's art is one thing, but when I hear about what he was actually THINKING and WHY he painted the way he did brings the experience to an entirely new level.
Much work and preparation went into making this weekend event a success.
