Curator Tour - Am Yisrael High: The Story of Jews and Cannabis

Join ART and Dr. Eddy Portnoy, Academic Advisor & Exhibitions Curator at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, for an after-hours tour of YIVO's latest exhibition, Am Yisrael High: The Story of Jews and Cannabis. For millennia, Jews have been buying, selling, and using cannabis for religious and medicinal purposes and as an intoxicant. Am Yisrael High explores the evolving story of Jews and cannabis, from the bible to Jewish contributions in the realms of science, counterculture, legalization, and business. Dr. Portnoy will be available for a Q&A after the tour.
