The Arizona Jewish Historical Society will open its new exhibit, “Love & Marriage: The Cultural Evolution of Jewish Weddings from 1912 to 2016” at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 30. The exhibit will feature information on rituals, traditions and customs as seen through wedding gowns, objects, artifacts, and telling stories of real people’s life experiences. Because the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center, where the exhibit will be displayed, was home to Congregation Beth Israel, the first synagogue in Phoenix, and the First Chinese Baptist Church, both are represented. The gallery will be open noon-3 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and by appointment. Admission is a $5 donation. Visit azhjs.org or call curator Jeffrey Schesnol at 602-241-7870.
