Judaism Aloud

An Au­dible and Palpa­ble Tour for Blind and Visu­ally Im­paired

What does Juda­ism sound like? The ex­peri­ence begins with Jew­ish pop mu­sic and the sounds of sing­ing at a syna­gogue. The group will then dis­cuss what makes music Jew­ish. The tour of the core exhi­bition con­siders reli­gion and ritu­als through a varie­ty of sen­sory sti­mu­li.

Visi­tors will touch or smell ob­jects and listen in at au­dio sta­tions, which give a tan­gi­ble ex­pe­rience of the poly­pho­ny of Jew­ish cul­ture and reli­gion: How are He­brew letters shaped? What is the struc­ture of a syna­gogue? What does Shabbat smell like? The parti­ci­pants will be intro­duced to a varie­ty of tradi­tions and reli­gious inter­pre­ta­tions within Judai­sm and fami­liarize them­selves with the die­tary laws.
