The Art of the Hebrew Name

Inspired by graphic artist Hillel Smith’s Parsha Poster collection, participants uncover the Hebrew names of the weekly Torah portions, hidden inside contemporary images evocative of the Biblical texts. They then proceed to create their own hidden name creations, playing with the Hebrew letters and engaging with deep questions about their own Hebrew name- the meaning of it, the person they are named after and the character traits they embody.

Kol HaOt imparts Jewish values, texts and history through a creative synthesis of the visual and performing arts.

We believe that harnessing the arts, via our interactive programs, is a necessity, not a luxury, and is an effective model for Jewish education, identity and community.
