Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From mezuzahs to menorahs, these outstanding Jewish ceremonial and ritual objects make a beautiful new addition to the celebrated 500 series. Contemporary in style and lovingly handcrafted, they come from North America, Europe, and Israel, and demonstrate the diversity of Judaism. The artworks include tzedakah boxes, shofars, tallits, Shabbat candlesticks, havdalah sets, Kiddush cups, Torah pointers, kippahs, Seder plates, and dreidels.

Book News Annotation:

Hiddur mitzvah is the principle of adding a beautiful aesthetic dimension to the fulfillment of Jewish commandments. A curator with The Jewish Museum, New York City, introduces this compilation of some 500 representations of ritual objects in modernist and postmodernist styles that exemplify this principle. The book includes comments by some of the featured artists, and a glossary of terms for ritual objects including ketubah, kiddush cups, menorah, mezuzah, seder plates, Shabbat candlesticks, tallit, torah pointers, and tzedakah boxes.
