Letters of Light

Rachel Elior, Yigal Zalmona, Caron Sethill

Micha Ullman’s “Letters of Light” will stand in the southern portion of the new National Library of Israel campus in Jerusalem, at a prominent crossroads between the Israel Museum and the Knesset. Anchored in ancient Jewish mystical text and drawing inspiration from alphabetic traditions of other cultures, the ground-breaking work is largely inspired by Sefer Yetzira (Book of Creation), an ancient Jewish text maintaining that the universe was created through these 22 letters.

What is Sefer Yetzira and how can it and other ancient, mystical texts be reflected in modern art?

Join Yigal Zalmona, art adviser for the new National Library of Israel, in conversation with Rachel Elior, John and Golda Cohen Professor of Jewish Philosophy and Jewish Mystical Thought at the Hebrew University.
