Abstract:

One hundred individual carpets, dating from the 14th century to the present, woven in Israel, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Greece, Bulgaria and The Ukraine are illustrated and accompanied by vigorous and informative commentaries. Their place, their time, their wool, their knots, may all vary, but the unity of their symbols and of their inscriptions give them a compelling and cohesive identity. The meanings and messages of the symbols and the impact of the prohibition against graven images are assessed, as are the artistic, aesthetic and technical elements of the carpets.

It surveys the religious carpets hanging in the synagogue, as protection for the Ark, and in the home, as pointers to Jerusalem. It examines the early Zionist carpets, which crafted a new post-Ghetto Jewish identity, directing people towards the Bible lands and creating skills and work there. It reviews some wonderfully fine Islamic carpets signed by Jews and uncovers ORT carpets which interweave Judaic symbols with Socialist Realism.
