ISRAEL---The controversial art display at Sapir Academic College in the northern Negev near Sderot, which triggered a protest when it opened to the public last Tuesday, has reached a new low in offending Judaism in the name of "art." In another shocking piece, a video shows apparently a man wearing tefilin (phylacteries) as sandal straps on his feet, along with a tallit (prayer shawl) - embroidered with the blessing said when putting it on - as underwear. Arutz Sheva has decided not to share imagery from the artwork so as not to further spread the serious offense to Judaism expressed in the exhibit. [link]
