Artists’ beit midrash in Teaneck

Participants are welcome to join Congregation Beth Sholom’s 10th annual Artists’ Beit Midrash, beginning on November 30. This year’s theme is “The Jew and the Other: Exploring the Book of Jonah.” All texts will be presented in English and Hebrew.

Participants will work with instructors to explore the theme through their own creative approaches and contribute to a public exhibit in May.

The class meets on six Sundays through Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. to noon. It costs $200. Instructors are Rabbi Gary Karlin, who has worked as a day school rabbi, a teacher of Bible and rabbinic literature, and is writing a curriculum on the book of Jonah for the Schechter Day School Network; and artist Harriet Finck, who was trained as an architect and is a collagist.
