The catalog with the same name as the exhibition "A Time for Everything: Rituals Against Forgetting" is devoted to selected Jewish rites of passage, their specific forms, and their origins and meaning.

"A Time for Everything. Rituals Against Forgetting"
The roughly sixty ceremonial objects from private and public collections are largely from southern Germany. All the transition rituals treated are universal in nature, as the cycle of life poses the same eternal questions for everyone. They all also have a unique importance for the individual or the collective, which is not to be forgotten. Photographs by the New York artist Quintan Ana Wikswo point to the historical dimension of rituals of remembrance.

"Man does not know his time." And yet: We schedule our days, we celebrate, we pause and remember times long past. We create rituals which structure our weeks, months, and years, such as the Shabbat or the High Holidays. So-called rites of passage have great meaning for our private lives and we celebrate them accordingly; in social life, we share memories of public events, such as remarkable soccer matches. A magazine on "Times."
