The creations of Limmudnyk’s were not hard to find at the latest exhibition of The Jewish Theological Seminary’s Artist-in-Residence Program. Curated by Tobi Kahn, “Volumes III: Ex Libris” featured artwork by Limmud NY 2012 presenter Amichai Lau-Lavie, as well as veteran volunteer/presenter Jennifer Gersch.

Not only were Limmudnyks a part of the exhibit, but Limmud NY aided in the creation of one of the pieces. Amichai Lau-Lavie drew on texts from the Limmud NY 2102 genizah and used them to create a new genizah box, which will be donated to Limmud NY for future conferences after the close of the exhibit. For more about Amichai’s work, please read his artist’s statement or view a video tour of his contributions to the exhibit.
