People of the (Artists’) Book: Creating Around the Jewish Sacred Cycle (Six part series - part 1 of 6)

  • Congregation Beth Israel 1630 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA, 94703 United States (map)

7:00-9:30 PM, TUESDAYS, OCT. 23, NOV. 20, DEC. 11, JAN. 29, FEB. 26, MAR. 26

Our tradition teaches that the essence of each Jewish month can be expressed through a single corresponding biblical verse. Over the course of six monthly sessions, we will collaboratively create interactive artists’ books (i.e., handmade, multi-dimensional books) inspired by our investigation into these mysterious verses. Join Atiq (previously known as Beyond Noah’s Ark) and CBI  in learning and making as we explore the spiritual opportunities of every month. A gallery show at CBI at the conclusion of the series will share our work with the whole community. All levels of background in Jewish text study and art making are welcome, and all materials will be provided. This course is designed as a series, and participants (to the greatest extent possible) should expect to attend every session. Participation/materials fee: $50 (Scholarships based on need are available. Please ask!)
