Exhibit Review: A Blessing to One Another

Rabbi Abie Ingber took me and 3 friends through the exhibit on Friday afternoon. It was great - took us about 90 minutes to go through (and that's with Abie telling stories). The Holocaust is a significant part but the photos are (in my opinion) not the kind which would give children nightmares.

My friends were quite impressed - the exhibit explains a lot about the man Pope John Paul II was and the acts he took as pope. The exhibit will be in Cincinnati until July 15th - after that it goes to Washington DC & NYC. Then it will likely go to Boston and Chicago.

Here is the exhibit information, followed by a newspaper article:

"A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II and the Jewish People" is currently at Xavier University's A.B. Cohen Center in Cincinnati OH. The free exhibit will be open to the public through July 15 at the gallery, 1658 Herald Ave., north of the Cintas Center. On display are oversized photographs, artifacts, video and audio interviews.
