"Jews of Color: a Renaissance" is the latest project by Scattered Among the Nations to educate about Jewish diversity, profiling some of the world’s most isolated and dynamic communities. Combining the photography of Jews of Color: in Color! and new paintings by Sam Renaissance based on the photos from that project, the exhibit aims to create a new paradigm in art and in people’s thinking about religion and race. Find out more.
