Judaism & Art Discussion Group2019-04-25T12:06:33-04:00

Why a Judaism and Art Discussion Group?

To deeper our appreciation of our heritage and to connect with that heritage through art. Jewish identification can be nurtured through the study of the Torah, and for some it can be the excursion into Jewish art and Jewish artists. We explore the work of Jewish artists and how Judaism may or may not have infused and inspired their creativity.

We inaugurated the program at the 75th Anniversary observance of Kristallnacht “the Night of Broken Glass” in November, 2013. Saul Rosenstreich led a discussion based on a Yad Vashem exhibit illustrated by portraits painted in the concentration camps of interred Jews by Jewish artists, all who ultimately perished in the camps.
