This nine-year collaboration presents contemporary visual commentary on the core text of the Jewish people- the Torah. The 54 participating women artists represent 5 continents and span the continuum of Jewish identity, from secular to ultra-Orthodox, while voicing diverse cultural inheritance. Women of the Book allows the dynamic creativity of visual midrash by Jewish women artists around the world to fill in the blank of How do women interpret the core story of the Jewish people?
