GREENPORT, NY--A group of eight Jewish artists have come together in search of a deeper understanding, insight and connection to Judaism through their art in a multimedia exhibit entitled “Who Art Thou?” at Congregation Tifereth Israel in Greenport. Through the guidance of Rabbi Gadi Capela, “Who Art Thou?” is a culmination of monthly presentations, discussions and Jud-aic interpretations at the synagogue. The exhibition honors the late North Fork illustrator and sculptor Robert Strimban and runs through May 20 with an opening reception on Sunday, March 25 from 2 to 5 p.m. It is open to the public, all are welcome. The exhibit will also feature “The Rabbi,” a paper sculpture by Mr. Strimban nearly completed for the show prior to his death, which came suddenly on December 29, 2017 at the end of an illustrious career.
