Feminism in Judaic art is not a new phenomenon, and a recently launched exhibition in the capital demonstrates this in celebrating the work of nine female artists who took their inspiration from biblical and rabbinic literature.

Titled “Women Inspired by Text,” the exhibition, which opened last week at Hechal Shlomo’s Wolfson Museum of Jewish Art in central Jerusalem, will remain until midsummer.
