Please join the Koslowe Gallery for a gallery tour of “The Art of Healing,” on Friday evening, October 14th, 2022. We are excited to share our emphasis on hiddur mitzvah — incorporating beauty to enhance Jewish learning — with WJC and the greater Westchester community. Our fall exhibition welcomes a curatorial collaboration with artist Tobi Kahn and the Barbara C. Freedman Artists’ Beit Midrash at the Streicker Center of Temple Emanu-El, in NY. The artists range in age from their thirties to their eighties, and have produced a multi-media exhibition of contemporary Jewish art derived from ongoing study of themed texts presented by Kahn, and three instructing rabbis. Rabbi Dianne Cohler-Esses, the Director of Lifelong Learning at Romemu; Rabba Wendy Ansellem, head of the Beit Midrash at Maharat; and Rabbanit Leah Sarna, the Associate Director of Education at Drisha. Kahn is a professor at the School of Visual Arts, in NY, and a painter and sculptor whose conceptual art is held in museums worldwide, including the Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, the 9/11 Memorial, and Yale University Art Gallery, as well as private collections and spiritual spaces.
Join us before for Rhythm and Ruach at 7:30pm and Community Dinner at 6:30 pm.
