The Amen Institute launched its first artist fellowship; 30 Jewish artists will be honoured as their Jewish Artists of the Week. Creatives have been assigned a portion of the Torah to inspire a visual art work, and they have been paired up with a Rabbinic fellow to study this portion with, where together they will work through important theological and spiritual questions that come from this biblical text.
Participating Jewish Art Salon artists:
Siona Benjamin, Gabriella Boros, Ellen Holtzblatt, Judith Joseph, Tobi Kahn, Mar Martinez, Tina Marcus, Richard McBee, Beverley Jane Stewart, Yona Verwer, and David Wander.
Through the inspiration of their Chevruta (partnered learning), they will create a work of art that will be featured in the Shabbat Newsletter of synagogues all around the world. At the end of the year, they will present and auction off this piece at the Color Commentary Art Gallery.
