San Francisco was charming as always, and in case you were wondering about the title - I've spent a day at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, where a fascinating exhibition named "Beyond Belief" took place. Variations on the theme of spirit, religion and magic beyond the Judaism, including i-pad stations asking you questions such as: "How do you cope with loss?". You choose an answer. You discover you answered like the majority of the visitors. Oh well. Nobody's special, not even the chosen people.
I found this dress in a vintage store - over-sized, crazy, conservative. If I was a religious Jew, I would probably wear something like this every day. Ironically enough, the exhibit and the dress chose, in some divine order from above, to coexist that day. The belt, with little animals on it, is another great find from a garage sale in Napa.
This was my favorite image from the exhibit, but the museum has other surprises: Black Sabbath, the sound project linking black jazz musicians with Yiddish influences simply blew my mind - the ultimate jazzy hit "Matzo balls and Gefilte fish" hadn't left my head all day. Here it is:
Enjoy! And don't forget to air your modest Jew-chis once in a while!
