The Jewish Art Calendar by Mickie 2019 is a hanging wall calendar that covers the 16 months from September 2018 – December 2019 corresponding to the Jewish year from Elul 5778 through Tevet 5780 (Sept 2019 – Dec 2019 appear on one page, so the boxes are small). Candle-lighting times, weekly Torah portions, Jewish holidays, and national holidays (U.S. and Canada) are all listed. Large boxes provide needed space for busy families to mark in everyday events. Each of the 14 illuminations created by Mickie has an informative description that adds meaning to the artwork itself. All of this creates a beautiful and practical 16-month wall calendar.
The extraordinary works of art reproduced here communicate the aesthetic values and skill of their creators while revealing different aspects of Jewish culture. Paintings, prints, sculptures, and ceremonial objects all speak as evocatively about the Jewish experience in the world as they do about the unique power of art to both inspire and inform. Spanning nearly two hundred years, these works represent the enormous range of art in the unparalleled collection of the Jewish Museum in New York City. This calendar covers September 2018 through December 2019 (Elul 5778 Tevet 5780). In addition to its 16 images (one for each month), it includes major and minor Jewish holidays, the weekly Torah readings and candle-lighting times, and the blessings to be recited over the candles.
