In telling a story, an author uses words to paint a picture but, according to the old saying, a picture paints a thousand words. This exhibition, Artists Consider the Jewish Book, features original artwork created to illustrate Jewish books.
In a continuing theme of exhibitions that highlight the art of the book, Temple Judea Museum presents the work of artists who are as intrigued by the Jewish book as is this museum.
