Rosenzweig Gallery Story

In the early 1990s, the Rosenzweig Museum of the Jewish Family was created under the direction of Lenora Ukco in the old building down the hill. When this new synagogue was built, the name of the Gallery was simplified to The Rosenzweig Gallery, and the management of the Gallery shifted from Judea Reform to the Jewish Heritage Foundation of N.C. Management; responsibilities were later returned to Judea Reform Congregation, allowing us to redefine and construct a new mission for the Gallery and to provide greater gallery involvement for our congregants.

The Rosenzweig Gallery rotates every four months and includes a gallery wall for 2-D work as well as a glass display case for 3-D work and other items and artifacts.
