Ellen Alt, Artist in Residence

As part of the Shabbat Across PAS initiative, we will come together for a community art project to create a large-scale Shabbat table. All age groups and demographics will have a chance to participate in this project through art workshops led by Ellen Alt, the PAS Artist in Residence. The table will be displayed in the lobby of our 87th Street building, and will roll out throughout the month of January, first with the table and tablecloth, followed by the candlesticks, then the wine and Kiddush cup, and finally the two loaves of challah. The artistic inspiration for this project is Claes Oldenburg, who created larger-than-life everyday objects and who passed away this summer, as we are celebrating Shabbat in a larger-than-life manner for our community focus this fall!
