Ben Schachter, associate professor of fine arts at Saint Vincent College, gave a presentation a the Conney Conference on Jewish Art at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, on April 10.
His paper, Artistic Interpretation of Jewish Law: The Eruv and Diaspora, addressed the basic construction of an eruv and how it builds communal and familial bonds.
