May 31, 1:00-2:00pm (EDT) / 20:00-21:00 Israel time, 10:00-11:00 PDT on Zoom.
Based on Alan Falk’s current solo show Between Two Worlds: Shir HaShirim and The Dybbuk explores the romantic and magical aspects of love and the search for the sublime, and comprises of his artworks based on The Song of Songs (Shir HaShirim) and on Sholom Ansky’s celebrated Yiddish drama, The Dybbuk. In these contrasting narratives, one is physical, earthbound, and rich in the abundance of life, whilst the other is spiritual, soulful, and weighed down by tragedy and death. Yet, in both, unconditional love prevails over all challenges directing our attention towards the unity attained by the lovers as they transcend their duality through the act of love.
Prayers of a Kohenet (Hebrew Priestess) features a studio visit. Bekah Starr‘s work is a celebration of the Shekhinah, the sacred primordial divine feminine. By reclaiming the power of ancient Hebrew rituals and prayers she empowers a modern day version of a Hebrew Priestess through visual art. We will look at hercurrent paintings, inspired by the liturgy of the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute. The presentation will include a brief answer to the question, What is a Kohenet?
Zoom info will be emailed to those on our email list.
