Knosh and Knowledge

Torah in the Tarot: Hidden Secrets of the Crypto-Jews

Scholar Stav Appel and renowned Berkshire-based sculptor Jonathan Prince bring together history, art, spirituality and digital technology to reveal the Jewish lore and legends hidden in the Tarot cards of Jean Noblet Tarot de Marseille created in the 1600s. 

Using mobile phone technology (that you already own), Appel and Prince will demonstrate their discoveries in a presentation that will uncover and bring to life ancient stories, rituals and holidays that were disguised in the Tarot cards to avoid detection by the Holy Office of the Inquisition and have been entirely unrecognized for over 400 years.

We are excited to offer this Knosh and Knowledge program in collaboration with the Boston area Jewish Arts Collaborative (JArts) as part of Federation's Celebration of Sephardic Culture and takes place at Hevreh of Southern Berkshire.  

Masks are optional.
