The Samaritans: A Biblical People, edited by Steven Fine
The Samaritans: A Biblical People celebrates the culture of the Israelite Samaritans, from biblical times to our own day. An international team of historians, folklorists, a documentary filmmaker and contemporary artists have come together to explore ways that Samaritans, Jews, Christians, and Muslims have interacted, often shunned and always interpreted one another across the expanse of western civilization.
This exquisitely illustrated volume celebrates a traveling exhibition produced jointly with the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C.
Eight Jewish Art Salon members are featured in this publication: Andi Arnovitz, Judith Joseph, Richard McBee, Mark Podwal, Archie Rand, Joel Silverstein, Hillel Smith, and Yona Verwer.
The artists created artwork specifically for this exhibition, which opens inWashington D.C. in the Fall of 2022.
A pop-up exhibition in conjunction with the documentary and book premiere will take place March 27th at the Center for Jewish History, New York.
Written for both the general reader and the scholar, The Samaritans: A Biblical People is a centerpiece of the Israelite Samaritans Project of the Yeshiva University Center for Israel Studies.
