This art exhibition is juried by Sheryl Intrator and sponsored by Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey and its “sister city” in Nahariya, Israel. This exhibition is one aspect of the Partnership2gether professional exchange that was established by UJA Federation to strengthen ties between the United States and Israel and promote Jewish unity and identity.
All works in the exhibit reflect the artists’ interpretation of a theme taken from the Jewish text Devarim 20:19-20, which states: “All trees that produce edible fruit must not be destroyed, even during times of conflict, so they can provide nourishment and sustenance for future generations.” The artists have been building bonds based on common ideals and beliefs and the exhibit is one important and worthy way for Israel and America to express their kindred spirits.
