If we were to seek a material object that most aptly symbolizes Jewish culture, we would probably choose the Torah scroll. This strip of parchment contains the Hebrew text of the Pentateuch, the public reading of which constitutes the core of the synagogue liturgy. Both the text and the object itself have a unique position in the Jewish religion and are considered to be holy.

The project of young Canadian artist, Melissa Shiff, offers an alternative look at a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony.

This is the story of a man who devoted his life to advocating ideals in the real world. A man who prioritised putting the ideas of Masaryk’s Czechoslovakia into practice before pursuing his own interests. A man who actively and tirelessly worked for the benefit of society. A man who managed to rise above nationalities, languages, creeds and party allegiance. A man who did not hesitate to put his own life at risk in the struggle against the enemy. A man who never gave up.
