Passover Landscapes: Illuminations on the Exodus features work by visiting artist Rabbi Matthew Berkowitz.
Through Passover Landscapes, Berkowitz hopes to recapture a spirit of creativity and spontaneity experienced around the seder table. His work continues the tradition of passing collective memory from generation to generation but invites today’s voices to join in.
