What is Jewish art? Simply art produced by Jews? Art depicting Jews or containing Jewish subject matter? What aboutJewish ceremonial objects with Jewish iconography, such as menorahs, goblets, Torah coverings, carvings, or folk artevoking the daily life of Jewish communities? Or metaphysical art, which grapples with Jewish mysticism, probes the letters of the Hebrew alphabet or attempts to express some aspect of the Jewish conception of reality?

Join Moment editor and publisher Nadine Epstein to explore this perennial question. The discussion will draw from Moment's recent symposium on the topic with answers from current artists such as Judy Chicago, Daniel Libeskind, and Helène Aylon, as well as their insights into famous works of Jewish art.
