Temple Beth El and Chadeish Yameinu Jewish Renewal present LOOKING JEWISH / JEWISH LOOKING Jewish Identity through Modern Art with Dana Peleg

June 1, 2016

They say that wherever there are two Jews, you'll find three synagogues. So, if you have one Jewish artist - how many identities, stories and artistic styles will you find? In a series of four lectures, we'll look at works by some of the most influential modern Jewish artists. From the 19th Century Reform Mauritz Oppenheim via 20th-Century Socialist Ben Shahn to our contemporary Mizrahi Feminist Shula Keshet, and many more in between, we'll track the events that shaped their lives - and ours, as well...
