Long-time CBT members Mark and Rachel Seliber recently visited a remarkable exhibit, calledTapestry of Spirit, currently showing at the Textile Museum of Canada in Toronto, through November 17th. The exhibit displays on its walls sections from Genesis, Exodus and Deuteronomy, along with selections from the New Testament in Greek and the Koran in Arabic.
The exhibit featuresTorah Stitch by Stitch, which is a monumental collaborative textile art project launched in 2013 by internationally renowned textile artist Temma Gentles of Toronto. Its goal is to produce an illustrated, cross-stitched representation of the entire Torah. 1,450 stitchers in 28 countries have completed 95% of the 1,464 text sections over the last 6 years.
