“Veiled Meanings: Fashioning Jewish Dress” — clothing from more than 20 countries on four continents, from the collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem — is on display at the Jewish Museum through March 18. It is the first comprehensive U.S. exhibition drawn from the Israel Museum’s world-renowned collection of Jewish costumes, showcasing more than 100 articles of clothing from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries, presented as complete ensembles or as stand-alone items.

The museum is at 1109 Fifth Avenue at 92nd Street in Manhattan. For information, call (212) 423-3337 or go to TheJewishMuseum.org.
