Get a glimpse of Jewish fashion from 17th century Turkey.
An art exhibit, featuring costumes worn by Jewish men and women on different occasions, is on display in the Crest Theatre at Old School Square.
'By experiencing this, people will understand a few things,' Vural Cengiz, president of the Assembly of Turkish American Associations, said. 'Through paintings, people will see pictures of beautiful clothing that represents a rich side of Jewish culture. They'll see how Jews and Turks lived in good friendship. And finally, they will learn about Jewish heritage.'"
