Midrash Pottery And Shabbat Chess
Women Lighting The Torah
Photographing The Hidden Synagogue
Terezin: The Hidden Synagogue, by Emily Corbato. Black and white silverprint, 2003
Corbato describes the piece as art that is “most definitely Jewish. It is strong, especially when text is included … It says about Jewish art that it is powerful, it is profound and personal and universal and sad and glorious in its making. It will bring some viewers to tears, and will stay in the minds of others. It tells of tradition, history, hope, destruction, rebirth. It tells the Jewish story.”
