Mayyim Hayyim Gallery

The Mayyim Hayyim Art Gallery is a dynamic, public expression of one of our founding principles: Hiddur Mitzvah -- the rabbinic mandate to make Jewish life beautiful.  We select and display works of the highest quality and in a variety of media, by artists of all ethnicities and religions. Housed in the Paula Brody & Family Education Center, the gallery functions as a classroom for students of all ages as well as a source of inspiration for everyone who walks through our doors .

We seek to:

  • Interest people from diverse backgrounds in Mayyim Hayyim through juried exhibits of the highest quality
  • Provide a beautiful environment for those who have come to immerse and for their families and friends
  • Present exhibitions and related educational programs that provide original perspectives about immersion in particular, and about ritual in general
  • Showcase the creativity of contemporary artists of all faiths
  • Provide a forum for the exploration of the role of the arts as an expression of Jewish life
  • Serve as a laboratory for Jewish arts education
  • Build bridges of interfaith and multi-ethnic understanding
