Please join us for a special program on Judaism and the Arts. Our speaker will be Dr. Helga Aurisch, Curator of European Paintings at the MFAH. Dr. Aurisch will examine the important contributions of the Jewish communities in three great cities ruled by the powerful Habsburg family: Prague, Vienna and Budapest. This Empire, stretching over vast parts of Europe for nearly 600 years, was a multiethnic, multilingual and multinational configuration. At different periods the Jewish communities enjoyed religious tolerance, thrived and made noteworthy contributions to the empire’s cultural and economic prowess, while at other times they suffered persecution and reprisals. The fate of the Jews was often a direct reflection of the emperor’s political wishes or even personal attitude.

The program is $18.00 general admission or $13.00 for seniors. Seating is limited. Please reserve your ticket online by August 3.

This is a Guild event. If you want to join the Guild, please contact Courtney Tutt at ctutt@hmh.org or 713-527-1640.
