The Jewish Museum of New Jersey at Congregation Ahavas Sholom, the oldest continually operating synagogue in Newark, is exhibiting “Yitzchok Moully: Pop Art Rabbi.” The solo art show reflects the spiritual and artistic journey of a chassidic rabbi turned pop artist. The show, curated by Matt Gosser, is open on Sundays through October 21, from 1 to 5 p.m. The Jewish Museum will hold a reception with the artists on Thursday, October 4, at 6 p.m., in conjunction with the Newark Arts Festival.
Yitzchok Moully is a conceptual artist whose work explores the intersection of spirituality and the material world we live in. He grew up in Australia and lived a few years in chassidic Brooklyn. He was a youth rabbi in Basking Ridge for 10 years before he embraced his creative spirit and becoming known as the Pop Art Rabbi.
