Exhibit Opening: The Ushpizin of the Silver Screen: Honoring the Visions & Voices of the Past
Join us for the opening of The Ushpizin of the Silver Screen, a Sukkot art installation located in Holocaust Museum LA's memorial garden in Pan Pacific Park. Created in partnership with Reboot, the installation focuses on the Sukkot tradition of the Ushpizin: inviting guests into the sukkah.
Time & Location
Oct 02, 2020, 11:00 AM PDT
An homage to the rich film culture of Los Angeles, the sukkah will be designed as an old-time Hollywood movie house, projecting interviews during quarantine with elders, including celebrities such as Carl Reiner and Norman Lear.
The Ushpizin of the Silver Screen is a collaboration of Reboot and Holocaust Museum LA, made possible with the generous support of CANVAS. The work is part of the national project – Dwelling in a Time of Plagues – which makes new outdoor art possible at museum sites, with organizational support from the Council of American Jewish Museums.

Speakers: Noam Dromi, Managing Director at Reboot Studios; Jordanna Gessler, Vice President of Education and Exhibits at Holocaust Museum LA; David Katznelson, CEO at Reboot; Tiffany Woolf, exhibit artist; Melissa Yaverbaum, Executive Director at CAJM
