Ben Schachter, associate professor of fine arts at Saint Vincent College, published an artist’s essay with accompanying images entitled, The Eruv: Urban Drawing and Assemblage, in the 2011 edition of Images: Journal of Jewish Art and Visual Culture.

“The issue is dedicated to the eruv and is perhaps the first of its kind,” Mr. Schachter commented. “I use the eruv subject matter in my creative work. It is a symbolic Jewish enclosure discussed in the Talmud, the oral law as written by rabbis. The eruv encourages community.”

The essay is available online at http://www.brill.nl/images.
