Art and Tradition Collide in Jerusalem’s Old City
Letters of Light: A new exhibition of Scribal artist Kalman Gavriel’s work.
Exhibit will run July 15- August 8, 2019 from 9-5, Sunday through Thursdays. Admission is Free to see the Exhibit upon 15 shekel general entrance to the Synagogues.
Special scribal workshops will be offered, schedules to be arranged.
“Letters of Light” highlights the deep and mystical tradition of the Hebrew letters. “The Hebrew letters are more than just ordinary letters”. In his unique and creative way Kalman portrays the letters as “beautiful and profound symbols that, upon consideration, come to life in different forms and fill the imagination with ideas”. One of Kalman’s goals in his art is to develop a visual language that expresses his ideas in a simple and enjoyable way. Kalman received his insights into the holy letters starting with his yeshiva studies and further developed them while serving in the Israeli Defense Forces.
Opening night premiere of the exhibition will be Sunday, July 14th at 8PM.
A 30 shekel entree free will include all you can drink wine and cheese.
Kalmans venue is The Four Sephardic Synagogue in Jerusalem’s Old City where he is the resident scribe. Kalman has a small corner in the historic Istanbuli synagogue, which is in the complex. From there Kalman does his scribal art as he greets visitors and runs scribal workshops. These groups and individuals, both Jews and non-Jews, receive Kalman’s teachings and workshops as he shares insights on the beauty and deeper meanings of the holy Hebrew letters and language.
Kalman Gavriel hopes to inspire generations of all ages, Jewish and non-Jewish, to be seekers in self expression and individual in their search for truth.
People today are looking for a deeper experience, Kalman offers interactive learning experiences, and fine Biblical art that satisfies this thirst.
