One response to “Symposium- Contemporary Jewish Art in America”
It was an interesting conference with excellent lectures. The exhibition and lectures emphasize the need for a closer interaction between the two largest Jewish communities – in the U.S and Israel. Thanks, David and Rami, for the organization.
