Traditional Jewish study typically entails sitting around a table with a group or with a chavruta partner.   There are those, however, for whom that type of study is not attractive, or sometimes, even alienating.  There is great value in also approaching texts through the arts, whether visual arts, music, or movement. A panel of artists and readers of text will discuss and demonstrate what it means to use the arts as a serious mode of processing text, leading to enlightening engagement with our sacred literature and spiritual fulfillment.
