Beth Ami Congregation Asks, “What is Jewish Art?”

Beth Ami Congregation Asks, “What is Jewish Art?”

Saturday, April 22 | 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM | Online via Zoom

What does it mean to say something is “Jewish art”?  Does it require a particular style or sensibility? Is it limited to Judaica and folk art? Or is it simply art that has been created by Jewish people? Join us as we delve into the aesthetic and philosophical considerations that deal with these questions.

We’ll begin with a short but meaningful Havdalah service to mark the transition from Shabbat into a new week. We will then hear a presentation by Rabbi Jodi Kornfeld of Beth Chaverim Humanistic Jewish Community in Deerfield, IL.  We look forward to a thought-provoking exploration of Jewish art in its many forms and purposes, as the communities of both Beth Ami and Beth Chaverim come together for this event.

You will receive the Zoom link when you click the attend button on our Meetup event page.

Beth Ami is the only Humanistic Jewish congregation in Colorado and is a proud affiliate of the Society for Humanistic Judaism. We celebrate Jewish holidays, learning and life cycle events through the secular lens of history, culture, and reason. We believe in the human capacity to create a better world without supernatural intervention.

Beth Ami is a welcoming community where we connect to Jewish past, celebrate Jewish present and link to Jewish future through a humanistic philosophy. We encourage anyone interested in learning about Humanistic Judaism to attend this and all our events.

Let’s do Jewish together – Humanistically!
