EVENTS Jews on Vinyl This multisensory exhibition guest-curated by authors Roger Bennett and Josh Kun tells the story of the Jewish experience in America. Starting with records in the '40s and ending in the '80s with the holy triumvirate of Barry Manilow, Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond, the exhibit is set in a campy 1950s living room equipped with listening stations. Like Bennett and Kun's book, "And You Shall Know Us by the Trail of Our Vinyl: The Jewish Past as Told by the Records We Have Loved and Lost," this Skirball show will take you deep into the Jewish musical memory.
