Rembrandt lived in an area of Amsterdam where many Jews lived, and he received a number of commissions from neighbours who wished to keep their portraits; some of them were his friends and posed for figures in his compositions, especially those with biblical themes. This relationship and the themes in the great painter’s work are presented by Gary Schwartz and Miriam Knottter. In preparation for the upcoming exhibition, the Jewish Museum and the Center for Tolerance will host a series of webinars on the subject of the exhibition.
