By The Jewish Artisti Initiative |

“The Rashi Effect, Artist as Commentator” exhibition is the culmination of Beit Midrash meetings held by several Jewish Artist Initiative (JAI) members on a monthly basis. Each member artist was asked to create new, or rethink existing, work in the context of the “Yetzer HaRa, Yetzer HaTov” or “Bad Inclination, Good Inclination,” a theme as basic as the Creation story of Adam and Eve and one frequently dealt with in Jewish texts.
