Jewish Book Council: Excerpt: Salt & Honey

Jewish Book Council

The Jewish Book Council published an excerpt of our anthology, Salt & Hon­ey: Jew­ish Teens on Fem­i­nism, Cre­ativ­i­ty, and Tradition. They published The Art of Jew­ish Food by Dalia Heller, who is now a jGirls+ alum after being a Teen Editor for three years. Her art is featured along with her artist statement.

For my con­fir­ma­tion project, I researched Jew­ish artists and com­plet­ed a series of paint­ings of Jew­ish food that emu­late the unique styles of those artists. I chose food as my sub­ject because shar­ing food brings peo­ple togeth­er in cel­e­bra­tion and across dif­fer­ences, and has been an inte­gral part of Jew­ish hol­i­days and events that are close to my heart.
