The Regendered Hebrew Bible Project
Join artist Yael Kanarek as she discusses her project transforming the Torah (Hebrew Bible) by changing the gender of each person and reinterpreting the names of God to gain a deeper understanding of the texts and of Jewish faith in her own life.
Since 2016, Israeli-American artist Yael Kanarek has been rewriting the Torah in Hebrew and English to reveal the feminine divine as a central presence in the Hebrew sacred texts. This need emerged after a decade of Kabbalah study and practice. Two years ago she founded BeitToratah.org where she publishes the books she and her collaborators have worked on. Additionally, she has been creating Visual Midrashim (Biblical commentary) as fine art prints, exploring ideas in Jewish thought through letters and form.
