Fall into Jewish Art

One of the best parts about being editor of 614 is that I get to work at the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute (HBI) at Brandeis University, where the eZine is published. Amongst the numerous programs provided by the HBI is an artist-in-residence program that provides artists the opportunity to work on and exhibit a significant artistic project in the field of Jewish gender studies. For the past seven years, I’ve gotten to walk through my building and check out amazing, thought-provoking (and sometimes downright wild) art pass through. Since I can’t bring all of you to the gallery, I decided to bring the art and artists to you in this issue. Get ready for some thinking far outside the box.
