Holy Sparks pairs artists with 24 woman rabbis to illuminate the creativity, commitment, and vision of women who were “firsts” in their time. Their challenges and contributions, struggles and successes, represent the achievements of all women rabbis since June 3, 1972, when Rabbi Sally Priesand was ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion as the first woman rabbi in America.
Dr. Bernard Heller Museum Director Jean Bloch Rosensaft will present and discuss the art, including Jewish Art Salon artists: Heddy Abramowitz, Ellen Alt, Siona Benjamin, Dorit Jordan Dotan, Tamar Hirschl, Judy Sirota Rosenthal, Joan Roth, Deborah Ugoretz, Yona Verwer and Ruth Weisberg.
This program is curated and hosted by Dorit Jordan Dotan and Judith Joseph. The JAS Open Studios Program Series is supported by Advisor Yona Verwer and team members Cheselyn Amato and Chana Wiesenthal Elias.
Zoom info will be sent to our email list on the day of the event.
