Rabbis At An Exhibition

Luke Ford writes:

In a 1996 lecture on Exodus 20, Dennis Prager says: There was a great hesitation to use art for anything but worshipping God [in the Jewish tradition]. The rabbis didn’t sit down, generally speaking, and paint. We didn’t have Hillel giving an exhibition of his works. The exhibition of Hillel’s works is in the Talmud and they are words. Jews painted with words.
