Discover the story of Judaism in a new light… This is what Paris Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme offers you on May 18, 2019 for Museum Night. From 6 p.m. to midnight, visitors and night owls will be given the chance to roam around the museum’s corridors, for free, and diver into the so peculiar story of this dogma through the permanent collections of the cultural venue set in Paris 3rd arrondissement.
And at the heart of this Museum Night, an informative project, held by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs and the Ministry of National Education, “La Classe, l’oeuvre”, in which the MahJ takes part this year again. As part of this project, students from the Ecole Saint-Jean-Gabriel set in Paris 3rd arrondissement too, have been invited to produce a mini drama play around the life of Marc Chagall. A production that students will stage in the museum’s rooms from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.
Museum Night program at the MahJ:
Night owls are invited to bring one to two pages of literature by a writer dear to their hearts (Philip Roth, Nicole Krauss, Hannad Arendt, Amos Os…) and in exchange, they are given a raffle ticket. If their ticket is drawn, the text brought is read unexpectedly by actor and the concept creator Yves Heck. A unique moment of sharing that is participative and friendly likely to delight literature enthusiasts.
The museum offers a unique tour of the “Helena Rubinstein: The Adventure of Beauty” exhibition lit only by flashlights. A tour in a peculiar atmosphere to discover only that night and masterfully led by two museum lecturers Yaële Baranes and Cécile Petitet.
