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.
