Women of the Book: Jewish Women Recording, Reflecting, Re-visioning, founded by interdisciplinary artist, Shoshana Gugenheim Kedem, is an international collaboration of 54 Jewish women artists. The select artworks, created on parchment - one for each Torah portion - acknowledge the emergence of Jewish women artists as visionaries and creative interpreters of text.
Women of the Book’s impact is achieved as a fine art exhibition, a book and a curriculum inspiring the lives of women, Jews and faith communities around the world.
Women of the Book is indebted to the following institutions and individuals for their generous financial support: Targum Shlishi, Sally Gottesman, Judy Zachs, Barbara Zeitler, The Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, The Eugene and Estelle Ferkauf Foundation, Jerusalem Publishing Atelier and many others.
We are honored to have a Women of the Book limited edition set reside in the Yale University Library Collection.
