Creating Commentary: Curriculum


Creating Commentary Curriculum

Creating CommentaryCreating Commentary offers participants an in-depth opportunity to study Jewish concepts and themes through the creative arts. An interdisciplinary approach focuses on the ways in which painting, sculpture, music, film, literature, and theatre explore aspects of Jewish faith, tradition, and history.

The concept of “covenant” provides the thematic focus for this program. Through text study, group discussion, art analysis, hands-on art making, and personal reflection, participants experience how different artistic modes inform their own ideas about Jewish life.
