Regardless of how one might define "Jewish Art,” Jewish artists – painters, sculptors, and others –
have flourished in North America, Europe, and Israel.
Jewish visual arts date back to the biblical Betzalel, commissioned by God to create the Tabernacle in the wilderness. Since then, Jewish visual arts have flourished, bearing the imprint of Jewish wanderings around the globe. Jewish art divides into categories including folk art and ritual art – artistic renditions of ritual objects.
