Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0965164012, Hardcover)

The Skirball Museum in Los Angeles houses one of the most significant Judaica art collections in the world. Curatorial and academic scholars come together in this volume to discuss the museum's origins and it's collections, which encompass 4000 years of Jewish historical experience. Colour illustrations showing objects from each of the museum's collection categories are accompanied by essays explaining the significance of the art. The two final chapters document the museum's inaugural presentation, "Visions and Values: Jewish Life from Antiquity to America", and the ancient Near Eastern history and archaeology exhibits of the Discovery Center.
