The Jewish Federation will present Wisdom and Fear, an exhibit of graphic design, through Feb. 28 at the Jewish Cultural Center, 5461 North Terrace Road.  Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. on Fridays or by appointment. Appointments and docent tours are available by call 493-0270. There is no cost to view the exhibit.  

Images of Wisdom are from the Frames of Mind Collection of Voices and Visions produced by the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.  These images consist of illustrated quotes by known Jewish authors. There are 12 images from the collection including quotes by Anne Frank, Hannah Senesh, Hungarian paratrooper rescuing Jews in Nazi territory, and many others. All of these images give guidance for creating a world against hate and fear.

Images of Fear are from the Life in the Shadow of Terror collection. These 20 images are from the Sir Jack Lyons Art Work Competition by students in ORT-Israel schools. These pieces, created by students aged 13-18 years old, offers insight in the harsh reality of everyday life in parts of Israel. The collections served as a vehicle for Israeli youth to express the impact of terror on their everyday lives.

“For all the fear that we feel in our environment, whether physical or emotional fear or both, there are voices that speak to us about how to move forward.” states Ann Treadwell, program director for the Jewish Federation.

The Jewish Cultural Center, funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Chattanooga, offers programs, classes and exhibits, social services, and a preschool—all rooted in Jewish values.  The facility enables the Jewish community to raise its visibility, foster relationships, and strengthen its identity in the Chattanooga area.  The Center and its programs are open to everyone regardless of religious affiliation.
