Women and Books (2)
Consulting Editor: Wendy Zierler
This issue’s cover illustration is taken from artist Susan Schwalb’s contribution to Women of the Book: Jewish Women Recording, Reflecting, Revisioning, an international collaborative art project by 54 secular and religious Jewish women artists. Each will paint her visual interpretation of one weekly Torah portion on a piece of kosher klaf (parchment). Inspired by the form and content of a traditional Sefer Torah (Torah scroll), the pieces will be sewn together to form an illustrated midrashic scroll.
