The exhibit features artists from the USA, Israel and Europe whose work addresses themes of intolerance, identity, anti-Semitism, racism and discrimination, explains Yvonne Simons, Executive Director.

The 21 artists in the exhibit are:
Robin Atlas, Shoshannah Brombacher, Dorit Jordan Dotan, Ash Fitzgerald, Lorelei and Alex Gruss, Reineke Hollander, Michal Mahgerefteh, Paul Margolis, Jacob Mezrahi, Aaron Morgan, Marcy Rivka Nehorai, Mark Podwal, Carol Phillips, Deborah Raichman, Joan Roth, Lynn Russell, Gillian Singer, Arlene Sokolow, Yona Verwer, Julian Voloj, and Joyce Weinstein.

Faith & Form consists of multi-media work depicting a range of subjects. Sketches exploring the myth of the Golem and abstract work featuring stones from Treblinka are presented along side an homage to the lost ghetto of Krakow. This broad survey also features photography detailing the lives of Jewish émigré communities; sacred Jewish objects for sale at an antique market in Vienna, and work directly confronting stereotypes. Faith, history and identity inform the work of these 21 artists, asserting a vision of contemporary art that is as bold as it is diverse.
