An exhibit by a local weaver is on display at the Welles Gallery of the Lenox Library until August 13th. Wendy Rabinowitz spoke with WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis about how her artwork expresses Jewish texts and the concepts of light in Judaism.

Rabinowitz will hold an opening reception and artist talk on July 23rd. Click here for more information.

In chilly weather, Lincoln often wore a dark wool shawl over his shoulders. Many years later Robert Todd Lincoln gave his father's shawl to a friend and it now in the American History collection at The Smithsonian (though not currently on display). In the new movie, Lincoln is seen often wearing a shawl.
