REINVENTING RITUAL OBJECTS                              

Learn about Israeli and American artists who are imaginatively reinterpreting    Jewish ritual objects.  Featuring a recent exhibition at the Israel Museum called “To Go: New Designs for Jewish Ritual Objects” where artists from around the world were presented with a challenge: to create a collection of objects together with a case — essentially a travel set for a Jewish holiday or lifecycle event. Such portable kits containing groups of cleverly stored items have been in use since the 16th century, and remain relevant today with the prevalence of travel in our modern lives. “To Go” highlights the fascinating intersection of Jewish art — which most of the artists had not previously explored — with 21st-century design.
