The Art & Setting of Revelation: The Aesthetics and Experience of The Giving of the Torah
Congregants Bobbi Coller and Roberta Hufnagel will speak on “The Art & Setting of Revelation: The Aesthetics and Experience of The Giving of the Torah.” What a scene, what a setting! Revelation in the Torah is described in visual language and takes place at Mt. Sinai.
For this year’s Tikkun, we will be treated to visually stirring and thought-provoking presentations about the wilderness. Bobbi will explore how it is presented in art over the ages, and Roberta will reflect on just why the Torah was given on a mountain, in the desert.
Bobbi is a masterful art historian, teacher and heads our Gallery Committee, as well as being a serious student of Torah and Talmud.
Roberta is a lifelong Torah and Jewish Studies learner, and she has hiked, travelled, and contemplated Torah on journeys around the world. Photos from her journeys are sure to delight and stir our midrashic imaginations.
Come, gather the Saturday night before Shavuot this year to extend our hag celebration. Bring your own cheesecake and ice cream! ZOOM link: Join Tikkun
