Ben Schachter, professor of visual arts in the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts, is the author of a chapter, Aesthetic Interpretations of the Eruv, in a new book, It’s a Thin Line, edited by Adam Mintz and published by Yeshiva University Press.

“My book chapter relates the construction of an eruv, a symbolic Jewish enclosure, to contemporary art,” Schachter commented. “I have been examining how religious thought and law corresponds with contemporary art practice and theory.”

Schachter was in New York City for the book’s official release.
