The Matzah Piece
Boston, MA; 1996.

Thirty Jewish women from the Boston area wrote and drew about their experience as a Jewish woman today onto porcelain matzah (unleavened bread. Matzah is considered the “Bread of Affliction and Freedom,” associated with the Passover holiday when Jews gained their freedom from Egypt). These matzah were then tied together to form a Tallit (prayer shawl) and hung in the form of a Chuppah (ritual wedding archway). The sculpture embodies and symbolizes a commitment to Jewish women’s freedom of expression.
