The new show “Impressions of Eastern Europe: Prints from the Permanent Collection,” at the Derfner Judaica Museum, features lithographs, etchings, engravings and woodcuts by 16 artists working in the early-to mid-20th century. At a time of rapid change, as Jews were pulled out of a traditional lifestyle, their genre scenes and folktale illustrations harken nostalgically back to an earlier era. The show includes the work of Isidor Kaufmann, Max Weber, Rahel Szalit-Marcus and Ilya Schor. — Opens Feb. 23 (through May 10), Derfner Judaica Museum + Art Collection at the Hebrew Home in Riverdale, 5901 Palisades Ave., Riverdale, art@hebrewhome.org, RiverSpringHealth.org/art.
