An Introduction to the Joy of Hebrew Letters and Lettering K’tivah with Rainer Adkins
K’tivah Tamah is Hebrew for ‘Calligraphy,’ and can be translated as ‘miraculous writing.’
Why? We’ll search for an answer via a succinct exploration of the origins and history of Hebrew letters and Jewish scribal arts, a few of the remarkable midrashic tales of the Alef-Beyt, and how to build and write a Sefardi-style script. A third of the class will be hands-on practice, and there is a $10.00 materials fee payable to the teacher.
Rainer Adkins is an artist, educator and activist who made the murals in the Beth Shalom sanctuary and lobby. He believes learning ‘art in context:’ through the integration of culture, history, folk and wisdom traditions, social structures, and ongoing work for a just and peaceful world.
