Kosher Sculpture Exhibition: 'the altars and People' • Gallery

Rachel Tauber, the first Orthodox sculptor, presented in recent weeks the exhibition of ' the altars and people', at the Efrat Gallery in Tel Aviv, during which some 20 sculptures which were created by her in recent years was presented, the gallery will run until the end of January.

"A series of stone statues, ,'alters' before you, is actually a series of invisibleportraits of people around me, those who gave me a glimpse into their hearts. Instead of exploring portraits and through that to understand how their heart looks- I chose to present the 'heart' itself, and let the viewer understand how the man whose heart this is looks; every 'altar – heart', such as this is expressed by value or other emotion, attribute or desire, a dream and humility. Every altar refers to existential questions concerning the nature of man."writes Rachel Tauber on her creations.

During conversation with her, Tauber emphasizes that all work performed by her, are those that are permitted by Jewish law, and not G-d forbid a prohibitedsculpture.

"During my studies in sculpture - especially at the Emunah College – the halachicissue is taught by the college Rabbi, in depth; Prohibitions of the Torah, the rabbinic prohibition etc.In brief summary we can say that sculpture of the human body completely and a similar origin is the problem, as well as sculpture of the sun, moon and stars shapes. Since I chose a line that does not touch the halachic problems - it's all easier."

"Before I turned to Tel Aviv galleries to interest them in my work – to hold an exhibition, we went to the BeitHoraah of HaGaonHaleviVosner in BneiBrak, asking what to do with the galleries that are open on Shabbos. Their answer was that it is prohibited to present at a gallery that is open on Shabbos since a Jew cannot work for me on Shabbos, and there is no room for leniency. For this reason I undertook to turn only to galleries which are closed on Shabbos, although they are less considered."

Tauber adds that "at the BeitHoraah we asked moreesoteric questions, like what to do with the gallery's glass cups when serving wine to guests. The answer was not to use these glasses. So we went to hire caterer's glasses for the occasion. (Disposables are out of the question for the gallery.")

Tauber, who won compliments on the part of leading professionals in the field, lives in Elad with her husband and five children, she holds the B.E.D.Degree in Tanach, Judaism, and finished art at Emunach College, laterTauber completed a master's degree in history OF art at the Hebrew University, and studied sculpture at the School of Sculpture 'base'.

So far TauberHAS introduced her creations at seven different exhibitions, but now for the first time, this is an exclusive exhibition, in which only the Orthodox sculptor's work is presented.

Among Tauber 's known creations, she notes an oil painting at the WolfsonJudaicaMuseum, at HeichalShlomo in Jerusalem, a sculpturewall covered in ceramic in a nursing home, NeveYaar, also in the capital, and a stone monument 'circle of Honi' (diameter 3.30 meters) in the city park in Elad

In this context of the monument, Tauber notes that it was established in memory of Yoram Levy hy"d, who fell in Operation Defensive Shield in Jenin, Yoram lived Elad, and thus the city initiated construction of a memorial.

She further says that at the unveiling of the monument were three city rabbis: Rabbi Grossman, Rabbi Malka and Rabbi Nachshon. She said "It was very important to me to ensure that the statue would not tolerate vandalism and de legitimacy, and thank G-d that helped."
