Episode 4 – The Binding of Isaac
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a joyful holiday of optimism and celebration. Why then do we read about the Binding of Isaac – this controversial story raising complex ethical questions – on this day? Join Romy Neumark on a journey after the modern binding and how it is expressed in the works of Israeli photographer Adi Nes.
Point of View is a partnership between Beit Avi Chai and the Israel Museum. Each episode presents a Jewish holiday theme through the eyes of objet d’art from the Israel Museum’s collection.
