The Artist’s Torah is an uplifting and down-to-earth guide to the creative process, wide open to longtime artists and first-time dabblers, and to every creative medium. In this book, you’ll find a year-long cycle of weekly meditations/Torah commentaries on a life lived artistically, grounded in ancient Jewish wisdom and the wisdom of Jewish artists, composers, writers, and choreographers from the past and present. You’ll explore the nature of the creative process — how it begins, what it’s for, what it asks of you, how you work your way to truth and meaning, what you do when you get blocked, what you do when you’re done — and encounter questions that will help you apply the meditations to your own life and work. Above all, The Artist’s Torah teaches us that creativity is a natural and important part of the human spirit, a bright spark that, week after week, this book will brighten.
