About the Author:

Ellen Frankel, former Editor-in-Chief and CEO of the Jewish Publication Society, is the author of ten published books, a librettist of opera and choral music, a lecturer, and a professional storyteller. Betsy Platkin Teutsch is a designer of Jewish ritual objects, a Jewish educator, and the illustrator of numerous publications.

Review:

"The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols is a most noteworthy and useful reference workd, with a clarity of style that will make it accessible to the general reader and a wealth of detail that will earn it the admiration of the specialist."--Chaim Potok, author, The Chosen, My Name is Asher Lev

"The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols by Ellen Frankel and Betsy Platkin Teutsch is a marvelous addition to anyone's personal Jewish library. Covering an enormous range of subjects--everything the reader might expect and some welcome surprises too--this book presents clear, lucid explanations, historical objects, ideas, concepts, and the world of nature. For both information and entertainment, the reader will find The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols a welcome and welcoming companion."--Barry Holtz, author, Back to the Sources

"This is a book for savoring and studying--or for dipping into from time to time to learn more about the meanings of your favorite Jewish symbols. One of the real treats of this encyclopedia is that it provides not just the history and traditional resonances of Jewish terms but also their changing associations in contemporary Jewish life. Material on women's experience is well integrated throughout the volume, both in terms of historical associations and recent feminist reworkings of Jewish ideas and rituals."--Judith Plaskow, author, Standing Again at Sinai

Book Description Jason Aronson Inc. Publishers, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Jewish symbols reflect the interaction of word and image within Jewish culture. Jews have always studied, interpreted, and revered sacred texts; they have also adorned the settings and occasions of sacred acts. Calligraphy and ornamentation have transformed Hebrew letters into art; quotation, interpretation, legend, and wordplay have made ceremonial objects into narrative. This book represents just such a collaboration between art and language. Ellen Frankel and Betsy Platkin Teutsch, writer and artist, have brought their extensive knowledge and talents together to create The Encyclopedia of Jewish Symbols, the first reference guide of its kind, designed for use by educators, artists, rabbis, folklorists, feminists, Jewish and non-Jewish scholars, and lay readers.
