Hanan Harchol: Jewish Food For Thought

Thursday October 3, 2013 - June 27, 2014

Hebrew Union College
Jewish Institute of Religion Museum
1 West 4th St., New York, NY 10012

Jewish Food For Thought: The Animated Series is a collection of thought provoking and entertaining animated shorts, written and animated by Hanan Harchol, that incorporate Jewish teachings into meaningful and funny conversations between Hanan and his father, an Israeli nuclear physicist. Each episode focuses on a particular theme in Jewish teaching, such as apology, forgiveness, or gratitude, distilling the major Jewish teachings on that theme into accessible, contemporary, non-preachy, engaging human conversation. The series provides a fresh, new, non-pedantic way to access thousands of years of Jewish wisdom.

This 9–month–long, catalogued, solo exhibition will feature Harchol's entire animated series, paintings, drawings, graphic novel tapestries, and Jewish texts. The opening will include the World Premiere of two new animations on Humility and Faith as well as a panel discussion on Making Jewish Wisdom Accessible Through Art, with Professor Matthew Baigell, Tali Kahana, and Joe Septimus, moderated by Rabbi Leon Morris. Following the exhibition in New York, the exhibit will travel to museums around the country.
