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.
