The Interfaith Artist Circle of the Twin Cities is a group of visual artists who pursue art as a spiritual journey. Originally founded in 2005 as the Jewish Women Artists’ Circle, the group now includes women artists from multiple faiths. The exhibit, Visual Prayer is the creative exploration of prayer through images, finding commonality and connectivity as well as diversity among religions. This exhibit was curated by Aimee Orkin, a Judaic artist and teacher who embarked on a one year sabbatical studying prayer with rabbis, scholars and cantors. “We hope our interfaith exhibits in the community will inspire collaboration among all faiths,” states Aimee Orkin.

Artists include: Jeanne Aaron, Beth Andrews, Hend Al-Mansour, Sandy M. Baron, Jane Bassuk, Kirsten Malcolm Berry, Sandra Brick, Gloria Cooper, Elizabeth Erickson, Lucy Rose Fischer, Renanah (Rani) Halpern, Angela Heida, Joyce Lyon, Aimee Orkin, Paula Leiter Pergament, Susan Peploe, Regula Ruselle, Anita White, Rochelle Woldorsky

MIDEAST TO MIDWEST

Zehorit was born in Israel to a Yemenite immigrant family. Growing up in multi-cultural Givat Olga, she experienced Israel’s rich ethnic diversity through food and celebration. Following high school graduation, Zehorit Joined the Israeli army, where she became an officer, finishing her service as a lieutenant. She then majored in English Literature and Political Science at the Tel Aviv University.

While working in a Minneapolis summer camp she met her husband and relocated. Since then Zehorit has been raising her 4 children, teaching cooking classes in both the Jewish and the general communities and volunteering. Zehorit brings to the kitchen her Mediterranean roots, her passion for healthy and flavorful dishes and her love of people and storytelling. Teaching in the Twin cities for the past 10 years, she shares her appreciation for the way in which culture, geography and history shape our food and the way we gather to eat it.

Food is a vehicle to creating community, to shaping memory and to sharing cultural richness. – Zehorit Heilicher

The Sabes & St. Paul JCCs hope you enjoy this unique online exhibition featuring artworks from our own community on the theme of Shalom Bayit (Peace in the Home). This foundational Jewish principle takes on new meaning in our current landscape, and as more and more communities around the globe have been sheltering-in-place, we are redefining what home is and what is means to have peace in the home.

Shalom Bayit is an ongoing practice – the intention is to create a sanctuary, a place that feels welcoming, calm and safe.

*Please check back often as NEW art will be added as they are received.
