An exhibit that fuses biblical stories with portraits by Rembrandt is up on the Web. “Scripture Envisioned: The Bible Through the Eyes of Rembrandt” is available at JewishHistory.com. “Rembrandt’s biblical scenes are not merely an exercise in historical painting, they contain his own passion and intensity as well as a remarkable degree of his innovative biblical interpretation,” writes the Bible scholar Bryna Jocheved Levy, who provided commentary for the exhibit.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
