April 9, 2023    
10:30 am - 11:30 am

Midrash and Marc Chagall: What Color is the Bible? –led by Rabbi Emeritus Gary Fink Was the Red Sea really red when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt? What do Marc Chagall’s paintings of Passover themes reveal about him? How does Chagall’s art portray the interconnection of Passover motifs in both Jewish and Christian traditions? How would you depict the creation of man and woman, and what does that say about you? What color was Jacob’s dream and did he dream in color? Between 1956 to 1966, Marc Chagall painted a series of large canvases depicting popular Biblical narratives. Join Rabbi Emeritus Gary Fink for a creative, interactive look at these paintings in light of Biblical narratives, rabbinic midrash, and your imagination. The first session will deal with Passover-themed art and the second will focus on other Biblical narratives. The class will be held on Sunday April 9 (Hol Hamoed Passover & Easter Sunday) and Sunday April 16, from 10:30-11:30am at Oseh Shalom. Expertise in Torah text or art history is not necessary.
