Mystery and Faith: The Shroud of Turin Exhibit

FEBRUARY 26, 2022 – JULY 31, 2022
About the Shroud of Turin
Few artifacts in the world have stirred the imagination, provoked controversy, raised hypotheses—and for some, fortified faith—as has the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud resides in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Turin, Italy, as it has for over four centuries. It bears a faint, yellowed image of a naked, crucified man and is believed by millions of Christians to be the burial cloth of Jesus of Nazareth.
 
Museum of the Bible is excited to present a groundbreaking, high-tech, innovative exhibition about the Shroud of Turin! Over the course of five exhibit sections and eight cutting-edge interactives, guests will learn about how the Shroud mirrors the Gospels, its history, and its impact on millions of people.
 
        
The Museum of the Bible will be hosting several international-themed events during the month of May!

Joel has been taking photographs of wildlife, nature, and the environment for over 30 years with the hope of inspiring others to care about the conservation and protection of our natural wonders. Songbirds, herons, and waterfowl are some of his favorite subjects to shoot year-round, capturing the changes in the seasons and migration. Joel has had the good fortune to shoot photographs of black bears in the Shenandoah Mountains, bald eagles along the Potomac River, tundra swans and canvasbacks on the Choptank River, and vintage schooners on the Chesapeake Bay.

Fires in the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and Other Identities


June 9–July 3, 2022

August 1991: simmering tensions in the racially polarized neighborhood of Crown Heights erupt into riots after a Black child was killed by a car in the Chabad-Lubavitcher Rebbe’s motorcade and a white Jewish scholar was slain in retaliation. Anna Deavere Smith’s groundbreaking documentary play uses verbatim testimony from individuals throughout the diverse community, creating a nuanced portrait of a shared but divided geography. This theatrical event – performed over 30 years after these life-changing riots – promises a tour-de-force solo performance and a story which touches upon every American regardless of race, color, or beliefs.

Revelation & Remembrance: Recapturing the Echoes of Sinai

At Shavuot, we recall the revelation of Torah at Mt. Sinai. We imagine what it might have been like for our ancestors and attempt to incorporate that experience into our own lives. How successful are we? Is it even possible?
Through Midrash, commentary and discussion explore the moment which is so difficult to recapture and consider how Sinai echoes in our own souls.

Elder Abuse Prevention and Intervention through a Trauma-Informed Lens
June 1   1-2:30 pm
 
Join the ElderSAFE Center, CHANA, and BC REST for their second annual World Elder Abuse Awareness Day webinar! Elder abuse is a complex issue, affecting about 10% of older adults in the community. It is imperative that professionals understand how to address this issue through a trauma-informed lens. This webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of trauma and its effects on the body and mind. Attendees will then learn to use that understanding of trauma to inform their work with older adults when preventing and intervening in cases of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation.
