Curated by Judith Joseph and Dorit Jordan Dotan, in this acclaimed online series we will be joined by artists Beth Krensky, Alan Hobscheid and Beth Haber.
They present their art and address the new reality we have entered. Life will never be the same as it was before COVID-19. How can we create a world that embraces diversity, compassionate treatment of all living beings and responsible stewardship of the environment?
In addition to the curators, this program is produced with the support of Jewish Art Salon’s Program Advisor Yona Verwer and team members Cheselyn Amato and Chana Wiesenthal-Elias.
