The Shmooze: The Yiddish Book Center's podcast

Jews in Space

This week we're joined by Joanna Church, director of collections and exhibits at the Jewish Museum of Maryland, to talk about the newly opened exhibit Jews In Space: Members of the Tribe in Orbit. We learn about the ways in which outer space has inspired Jewish artists, writers, comedians, and thinkers, both religious and secular, to boldly imagine realms beyond our Earth. And Joanna talks about a few of the surprising items included in the exhibit—from the first dreidel in space to a monumental stack of science fiction magazines.
