VIDEO: Between Two Worlds – Shir HaShirim and The Dybbuk + Prayers of a Kohenet

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.

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 her current paintings, inspired by the liturgy of the Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute.

The session was organized by the Jewish Art Salon and moderated by Yona Verwer. Co-sponsored by Art Kibbutz and Jada.
