Tobi Kahn – Amen Institute Artist of the Week

All are cordially invited to attend this Amen Institute “Articulation” which will be held on Sunday March 6th at 2 pm ET.

In this presentation Tobi Kahn, a highly regarded artist, and Rabbi Ysoscher Katz, an influential Orthodox rabbi will share the art and insights that were inspired by their 6 month investigation of the Jewish practice of atonement through sacrifices. As we close the book of Exodus, this poignant meditation on a central biblical practice will surely rouse new meaning as we are escorted into the book of Leviticus.

Admission is free and the conversation will be timeless, hope to see you there.
