In this book, the world of
the Bible and traditional Jewish commentary meets the interpretive
creativity of artists from different cultures and religions. Through
these artistic works, the authors of this book bring to life a
stimulating visual and textual dialectic surrounding the weekly parasha.
Rashi and Rembrandt, ancient synagogue mosaics, and generations of
artists and thinkers all contribute to the continuing conversation. This
multi-disciplinary approach to the parasha - one that is not often
brought to the Shabbat table – bring to the forefront the emotional and
visual responses that can only be experienced through encountering the
facial expressions and body language of the biblical figures. Through
fascinating artistic analysis, the reader is familiarized with the works
in this volume, even while space is left to add his or her own personal
understanding of the work.
Each parasha also features a
short essay by Ohr Torah Stone’s Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, encouraging the
reader to interpret and create side-by-side with the featured artists in
the never-ending search to understand the nature of human existence.
