Shabbat Expression and Book Festival Kick-Off|
Saturday, November 2, 3:30pm-6pm
Join us for the kick-off of the 8th Annual Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival engage in a variety of free workshops focused on self-expression and the values of education and literacy. We'll then come together as a community for a special Havdallah service. Visit jccnvarts.org for information on the workshops, presenters, schedule, etc.
Featuring author David Ebenbach. The Artist's Torah is an uplifting and down-to-earth guide to creativity and the creative life as seen through a Jewish spiritual lens, meant to brighten the creative spark that's inside all of us. David will lead a workshop (3:30-4:15pm) that explores the beginnings of human creativity in the Garden of Eden story, followed by some free-writing/free-doodling by participants.
The Artist's Torah is wide open to longtime artists and first-time dabblers, to people of every religious background (or none), and to every creative medium. In this book, you'll find a year-long cycle of weekly meditations on a life lived artistically, grounded in ancient Jewish wisdom and the wisdom of artists from the past and present, meditations you can apply to your own life and work.
The Northern Virginia Jewish Book Festival (NVJBF) runs November 2-13 (plus a special event on the 18th). Ten authors visit the JCCNV in Fairfax. Plus family events and a book sale!
