Knoxville gallery features Jewish art

Posted on January 25, 2016

Generations of Knoxville’s Jews have used the Arnstein Jewish Community Center (AJCC) as a social and cultural gathering place. Since 1929, its mission has remained: To serve the spiritual, social, and educational needs of all Knoxville Jews.

Recently, the Knoxville Jewish Alliance (KJA) launched a campaign to update and improve the AJCC facility, making it more accessible to those with mobility limitations, in addition to completing some long overdue cosmetic updates.

The Schwarzbart Gallery – a permanent tribute to Judaic artisan Arnold’s Schwarzbart’s works – represents the anchor of the first phase of these updates, to be enjoyed by the entire community.
