In this extended format class, we will gather to answer vital questions about how to connect Jewish practice to contemporary culture. We have just entered a new decade where a picture is still worth a thousand words, but fewer and fewer people will read a thousand words. How do we match Jewish festivals and customs with the contemporary visual language of branded content that the current generation expects? The session will start with learning how to think visually and practicing methods that express spiritual concepts using imagery and tactile non-verbal objects. We will continue by looking at examples of Jewish visual ritual objects and then decide together how to implement this kind of thinking in the practice of our own communities.
