Artist Beith Midrash Opening

Exhibit Opening on June 12, 2023

“The Spiral That Reconnects”

An Exhibit of Works by the members of the Hebrew College & JArts Artist Beit Midrash

How does a spiral process illuminate the interconnections between individuals, ancestors, descendants, and ecosystems? How can a spiral both calm and disrupt?

In this exhibition, members of the Hebrew College & JArts Artist Beit Midrash ask: How might The Work That Reconnects, and specifically the Spiral That Reconnects, inspire and deepen our creative work, and help it speak to the social and ecological crises we face? Moving from Gratitude to the honor of Pain we reach to see with new eyes going forth. The exhibition was curated by Shirah Rubin, coco rosenberg, and Deb Feinstein.

“I am immensely proud of this exhibition,” says Rabbi Shoshana Meira Friedman `14, co-founder and director of the Artist Beit Midrash. “The work exemplifies our tradition’s call to be partners with the Divine in both creation and the healing of the world. I am grateful to Shirah Rubin and the community members who put the show together to share with the broader community.”

Artists’ Statement

We are an intergenerational group of 12 Boston-based Jewish artists who specialize in a diverse range of art media including painting, writing, poetry, sculpture, and collage. As part of the Artist Beit Midrash of Hebrew College and JArts, we have come together to explore the intersections of creativity and spirituality through the lens of repairing the world. Over the past nine months, we have been studying Dr. Joanna Macy’s Work That Reconnects in dialogue with Jewish texts selected by Hebrew College alumna Rabbi Shoshana Meira Friedman `14. The exhibit is organized and curated by artist Shirah Rubin, instructor of the Artist Beit Midrash EXPLO class.
