ARTISTS - Call for Proposals

Due: February 28, 2017

Project Brief
Art at the ZEDEK is a new project that welcomes modern day artists to share artwork that demonstrates their connection to Jewish life, culture, identity or heritage – defining the visual culture of today. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of arts professionals. Selections will be displayed at the shul in small exhibition spaces. Each installation will coincide with an art opening that will include a guest from the community who will speak on a Judaic topic inspired by the artwork. The goal is to invigorate our community with art, providing the congregation with the opportunity to enhance their connection to Judaism, and to showcase visual arts in the community. Shaarey Zedek has a history of arts leadership, beginning with its fabulous, mid-century modern design, Leo Mol stained glass windows, contemporary menorah by Secter Associates, glass relief work in the foyer by Warren Carther, and more.

  Children of Prophets  

B'nai Nevi'im: Children of Prophets Chavurah
(Formerly Maimonides Chavurah Group)

Held on the following Wednesdays at 8:00 PM:
March 8, 22

We have now embarked on a journey through the Former Prophets—as depicted in the books of First and Second Samuel, and First and Second Kings–featuring the likes of the prophets Samuel, Nathan, Elijah, Elisha, and others—not to mention King Saul, King David, King Solomon, and their royal descendants, right down to the destruction of the First Temple in 586 BCE. These often obscure books of the Bible offer a fascinating glimpse into the early history of Israel, and the complex and harrowing history through which we were guided by both Prophet and King, dozens of centuries before our own complex era.

“Even if they [Israel] are not prophetsthey are [nevertheless] the children of prophets” (Babylonian Talmud, Pesachim 66b).
