Chanukah is a very visual holiday with a focus on what we are able to see. Artist Siona Benjamin is a master of visual Jewish expression. Born in India to a Jewish family, educated in Catholic and Zarorastrian school, in the midst of a majority Hindu and Muslim communities, her art draws on many cultures to create visual interpretations of modern Jewish life. Take time this Chanukah to look at her representation on modern identity. Maybe you will be inspired to do your own art or have conversations about identity in a global Jewish age.
Siona Benjamin is part of the Be'chol Lashon Speakers Bureau. We invite you to browse through the list of dynamic presenters who address a wide range of topics of interest to congregations, organizations, and communities across the country and around the world.
