About this product
- DescriptionJewish symbols reflect the interaction of word and image within Jewish culture. Jews have always studied, interpreted, and revered sacred texts; they have also adorned the settings and occasions of sacred acts. Calligraphy and ornamentation have transformed Hebrew letters into art; quotation, interpretation, legend, and wordplay have made ceremonial objects into narrative. This book represents just such a collaboration between art and language. Ellen Frankel and Betsy Platkin Teutsch, writer and artist, have brought their extensive kwledge and talents together to create The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols, the first reference guide of its kind, designed for use by educators, artists, rabbis, folklorists, feminists, Jewish and n-Jewish scholars, and lay readers.
- Author BiographyEllen Frankel is the Editor-in-Chief of the Jewish Publication Society as well as a free-lance writer and professional storyteller. Betsy Platkin Teutsch is a designer of Jewish ritual objects, a Jewish educator, and the illustrator of numerous publications.
