Artists’ Reception for “Deeply Rooted” and “Photographic Visions of the Diaspora”
HUC-JIR is pleased to present an artists’ reception for a pair of thought-provoking art exhibitions this fall: “Deeply Rooted” and “Photographic Visions of the Diaspora.” “Deeply Rooted” explores the connection between the two primordial trees in the Garden of Eden: the Tree of Life and the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Four artists present literal and metaphoric understandings of these powerful symbols as they have developed over the centuries and have been used in science, religion and philosophy. “Photographic Visions of the Diaspora” features the work of the late Sy Edelstein, who spent years photographing Jewish shopkeepers from New York to Los Angeles. His work in the 1980s and ’90s captures a once vibrant but rapidly fading world
of small businesses.
