My 22 Signs and Wonders: Creating a Hebrew Alphabet Vision Book

September 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm


In this multidisciplinary collaborative workshop, participants will learn to access their inner vision of the mystical Hebrew alphabet through their visual art and storytelling. Their creative responses to the letters will then be transformed into a handmade book to keep as a guide for spiritual reflection. The class will be broken into three sections, led by artists Gilla Nissan, Alexander Nemser, and B. Neimeth, each using his or her unique approaches to guide participants to create a visual experience through Hebrew letters, text and mysticism.
