This unique volume details the art of ritual in Jewish ceremony and how those customs relate to the rise of spirituality in the United States. Kahn's work offers a new look at ritual observances and captures the yearning for shared spaces that help inspire the search for spirituality. This beautifully illustrated volume features spiritual objects that are both functional and elegantly crafted that relate to individuals from every age, race and ethnicity. Essays by leading art and Judaism scholars, curators and writers illuminate the historical perspective on the art while analysing Kahn's distinctive interpretation of ancient ritual.
