This June marked the completion of the fifth year of Tzohar Seminary for Chassidus and the Arts, where students have the opportunity to study concepts in Chassidus that are relevant and meaningful to them and then express them through their artistic talents.
This year, the students created a beautiful art gallery of their work, including their collaboration on a Sefiras Haomer quilt, with each square representing that day of the Omer’s counting. The art gallery also included individual’s work that represented concepts in Chassidus as well as showcasing the skills they gained during the year.
Along with the gallery, the Tzohar students created three rotating presentations: “Illuminations”, a series of short student films; “Page and Stage”, student readings of original poetry and short stories as well as acting of scenes; and “Miriam’s Circle”, a women’s music, dance and drumming event that highlighted women’s roles in leaving Egypt, both literally and spiritually, past and present.
“The personal growth of the Tzohar students each year is astounding,” said Mrs. Amy Guterson, Founder and Director of Tzohar Seminary.
“They grow as artists, as individuals, and as Jewish women through the synthesis of Chassidus and Arts. Chassidus instills them with a strong sense of purpose and the study of the arts helps them to find their talents and provide their personal contribution to the Jewish community and the world at large.”
