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.
