In this interactive session and virtual gallery tour we will dive into the rich visual worlds of Arabic and Hebrew calligraphy. Through historical, spiritual, linguistic and artistic lenses, we will discover the parallels between both languages. Educator, community builder, and artist Ruben Shimonov will take us on an exploratory journey of his multilingual calligraphy and the ways he has used his art to enrich Muslim-Jewish interfaith communities.
We will end the session with a live calligraphy demonstration. No supplies necessary, but if you’d like, feel free to bring whatever writing utensils and paper you have at home to follow along.
