Signs and Symbols: Calling All Artists Returns!

Beginning January 20, 2022: Calling All Artists is a project inviting artists of many kinds—visual, textile, multi-media, music, poetry—to study a biblical or rabbinical text with Rabbi Harry, and to interpret this learning through their art. “The class is a kind of midrash (interpretation of Torah)”, Rabbi Harry explains. This year, we will study Jewish symbolism, and the significance of using symbols. 

We will meet once a month for learning sessions with the Rabbi, beginning January 20, 2022, and continuing on February 24, March 24, April 7, and May 12, 2022. Meetings will be a hybrid of in-person and Zoom sessions, beginning on Zoom until the news improves.

In the fall, the artists, if it is possible to meet again, will celebrate their work with a delicious and gorgeous Gala in the Social Hall. If not, the Gala will still happen, but zooming.

For more information and to register, contact Barbara Pelman.

Fees are $70.00 for non-members, $50.00 for members.

Once you are registered, you can pay through the Synagogue Office, and a Zoom link and any update information will be sent to you.
