The fashion, history, and development of Jewish dress tells a story that spans the globe and crosses many cultures.

Stunning photographs spin tales of family traditions and religious devotion, with a special section dedicated to jewelry worn by brides and grooms. Superb photographs of specific garments, with many close-up details, are juxtaposed with rare contextual photographs from the Israel Museum's archives to create a tapestry of a people revealed through textiles, costume, and images.
