The exhibit, Drama on the Shabbat Table gave a starring tole to the Challah Cover. Each artist played the role in a different way. Here is one curator’s gratitude for the wisdom each artist discovered and shared with us, and one of many possible readings of the script.

In the beginning we read that G-d blessed the seventh day and declared it holy because on that day G-d ceased from all the work G-d had done. And then began the work of Man. Man who was created in the image of G-d, created drama. Sometimes the drama of competition had painful consequences. Sometimes it brought out the best in human nature. Hands, visible and invisible, demanded that man be held accountable for his actions. And because family drama was understood to be a given, the artists sought wisdom in the teachings, in the imagination and in their hands.

And then began the work of the children.
