Through March 31, the Vermont History Museum at 109 State St. in the state capital is presenting "To Life!", a historic exhibit celebrating the stories of 20 Jewish Vermont women from all walks of life, from ages 12 to 101.
Each woman's story is illustrated with a large photographic portrait, archival photos, an essay, selected quotes, and anecdotes from each woman. There will also be works of contemporary Vermont Jewish women artists on display.
The Vermont Historical Society hosted an opening reception for exhibitlast week, featuring its two creators, Ann Buffum and Sandra Gartner, as well as some of their subjects.
In discussing the celebration, Mark Hudson, the society's executive director, said, "These women embody the very essence and spirit that is Vermont. This exhibit documents the impact of these women on their Jewish communities, their hometowns, and the state of Vermont."
