(Re)inventing Ritual: Hands on Art Workshop

18 Nov

Jewish Ritual: Rethinking, Renewed

September 14 – December 31, 2011


Jewish Ritual: Rethinking, Renewed curated by Georgia Freedman-Harvey, features the work of 16 Jewish artists including: Bill Aron, Elizabeth Bloom, Carol Es, Benny Ferdman, Carol Goldmark, Laurie Gross, Marcie Kaufman, Eileen Levinson, Peachy Levy, Laurel Paley, Victor Raphael, Ilana Schachter, Doni Silver Simons, Ruth Snyder, Erella Teitler and Ruth Weisberg.

At the heart of the exhibit is this question: How can art add more relevance to rituals that play an important role in the personal lives of artists and their communities? It is based on the idea that rethinking and/or renewing how one engages in rituals allows one to reconnect with Judaism.
