Jewish Ritual: Rethinking, Renewed
Rituals like art give meaning to life. Judaism is steeped in rituals and traditions. Over time some rituals have evolved or changed to reflect our need to renew, rethink, and recreate traditions that have been passed down between generations or have existed through our history. The challenge is finding the right balance between the historical roots of a longstanding ritual and the introduction of contemporary interpretations into the ritual.
This exhibition, from the Jewish Artists Initiative, is a reflection of the many facets of Jewish rituals and holidays. It is a melding of the rituals that infuse every aspect of living a Jewish life. These works will evoke memories of growing up, of stories told over and over in families.
Featured Artists: Bill Aron, Elizabeth Bloom, Carol Es, Benny Ferdman, Carol Goldmark, Laurie Gross, Marci Kaufman, Eileen Levinson, Victor Raphael, Doni Silver Simons, Ruth Snyder, Erella Teitler, Ruth Weisberg
