OHIO---It's something new everyday for employees of the Skirball Museum on the campus of Hebrew Union College as they unbox 1,500 to 3,000 ancient and modern art pieces donated by the now closed B'nai B'rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum in Washington, D.C. The collection acquired in May, 2015 is more than quadrupling the size of the museum's holdings, making it one of the largest and most important Jewish museums in the Midwest. [link]
