Mark Podwal - Sabbath Sandwich
The exhibition addresses the ever changing and life enhancing merit of the celebration of the Sabbath. The three Abrahamic faiths, Judaism, Islam and Christianity each adhere to the teachings of the Hebrew Bible. The act of 'creation' is our beginning. Genesis reveals and Exodus repeats “remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy”. Each generation, building on the shoulders of the past, fine-tunes and/or embellishes the patterns of previous traditions. Over 50 leading international artists, many of them members of the Jewish Art Salon, have created new works including ritual objects in silver, glass, wood, ceramic and textiles.
