ARTICLE The Creation of an Artists’ Beit Midrash, A Jewish Artists Lab

In this video, Jody Hirsh, Director of Judaic Education at the JCC in Milwaukee, talks about how arts are the best education. “They are immediate,” Hirsh says. “You can experience a work of art, and it can strengthen your identity.”

By creating a Jewish Artists’ Lab, artists in the Jewish community of the upper Midwest region have a space in which to study and discuss Jewish text to inform their artistic creations, as well as participate in a parallel Artists-in-Resident program. “Experiencing a work of art helps create meaning in one’s life,” Hirsh says.
