Beauty and Ugliness
(February 8–Monday, March 6)
Explore connections between Jewish visual art and perceptions of beauty using text and curriculum provided by the Aleph Society. Humans in all cultures use art to capture experiences of beauty, though different cultures’ aesthetics and customs may vary. Judaism is no exception. There is a rich variety of Jewish art available to us, which helps us connect to our history, culture and religion. We will look specifically at Jewish religious art, using Jewish texts to discover more about how the making of art connects with beauty.
