Description

Art works and exhibits that relate to the “People of the Book” and interact with the Beit Midrash dialogue of traditional Torah learning. Emphasis placed on the contrast between the way dialogue has traditionally taken place in the world of Torah learning (a lively, noisy, interactive exchange in the yeshiva), and the way in which it has been conducted in the world of art (a silent, closed, distant discourse in the museum). No itemized listing.
