Creativity with Texts and Rituals Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for Kiddush Club/ Shabbat lunch with special guest Eli Kaplan-Wildmann!
How do we connect between our contemporary world of saturated exciting visuals, and the ancient texts and ceremonies of our traditions? Using examples from Eli's "unbound books," we will experience what it means to elevate a gathering using vibrant tactile elements. To conclude, we will each think of how our own point of view on a Jewish or other gathering could be created visually.
Eli Kaplan-Wildmann lives in Jerusalem and loves creating and designing in the ancient city. His favorite projects there include designing for the Jerusalem Opera, Psik Theater, and the Jerusalem Light Festival. He directed several musicals including Hairspray, Singin’ In The Rain and the original musical Solika based on the Moroccan tale. In New York, where he studied, taught and worked, he designed off-Broadway. He is a gabbi (organizer) at the traditional egalitarian community Sod Siach, and is a former chair of “Havruta – Religious Gay Men.” Eli created Unbound – The Recreated Haggadah and Shabbat Unbound, and founded the publishing studio Unbound Jerusalem. The studio has created visual books that infuse familiar Jewish moments with excitement and creativity and looks forward to creating many more.
