Chodesh tov! Welcoming the Jewish month of Adar is our first step in celebrating the holiday of Purim. As part of the general festivities, this month’s verse for the Jewish Text Art Challenge comes from the Book of Esther.
לַיְּהוּדִים, הָיְתָה אוֹרָה וְשִׂמְחָה, וְשָׂשֹׂן, וִיקָר.
The Jews had light and gladness, and joy and honor. (Esther 8:16)
In the coming weeks, we are looking forward to being inspired by these words and how they have fueled our creativity. How do we present these ideas of light, gladness, joy, and honor in our art?
We hope you will join the conversation and tell us how our selections move you, as well as sharing how you have shown these words in your own pieces. To submit your art for this month’s Jewish Text Art Challenge gallery please go to the main gallery page at https://booksandblintzes.com/home/jtac.
