Indian Jewish artist-in-residence in Cleveland this weekend

I just found out that a very interesting, powerful artist will be in Cleveland this weekend.  We hope that you’ll still attend services here Shabbat morning (!), but we highly suggest checking out the exhibit in Cleveland between November 12 and March 21, and attending the program there this Sunday.
