GRANVILLE, N.Y. - To Life! A Celebration of Vermont Jewish Women, opened at the Slate Valley Museum in Granville, N.Y., last week. Exhibit creators, Ann Buffum and Sandy Gartner of Rutland were on hand for the opening.
The 18-panel exhibit depicts the life stories of 20 Jewish women living in Vermont, from all walks of life, ages 12 to 101.
Each woman's story is illustrated with a large photographic portrait, archival photos, an essay, and selected quotes and anecdotes in the women's own words.
In context, their individual stories are a thread in the larger history of the Jewish community in Vermont and the Slate Valley.
